Starry Indigo Blues Boro Fragment
A hand-loomed and hand-dyed indigo cotton futon fragment. The different shades of solid indigo patches in a variety of hues are offset by unusual kasuri resembling a starry night sky with subtle streaks of white. All stitched together using a simple running stitch (sashiko).
A beautiful soulful cloth. The narrower width and long length of this piece makes this a great choice for displaying in a smaller space, such as at the end of a hallway.
Circa late nineteenth century
Dimensions: 25" x 78"
