Japanese Boro Textile: A Kasuri Panel with Indigo Patches

65.00

A beautiful single width boro panel of lightweight double kasuri, created with a double ikat technique. Kasuri is created using threads that are first tied off in sections before a resist is applied, then dyed with a botanical indigo. These threads are then used as both warp and weft and are expertly woven to create the pattern seen here.

 A half dozen boro patches have been added with sashiko stitching to reinforce and mend areas with wear.

It is a pleasingly lightweight fabric with a wonderfully soft touch. Small pinholes can be seen along the long sides where hand stitching was removed to separate this panel, perhaps from a futon cover fashioned form a recycled kimono. 

There is light patina to the white portion of the cloth from age. A charming item with a rich history.

Dimensions: 10.5 x 50 inches; 26.5 x 127 centimeters
Early to mid-twentieth century
