Yellow Over Dyed Indigo Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth

85.00

A lovely, three panel, green furoshiki wrapping cloth with a stylized paulownia emblem in the lower corner.

A stylized paulownia kamon, Japanese crest, was created by applying a rice paste to resist the dye, leaving the natural cotton color undyed. 

The rich green color is very alluring with wear from use, giving it a beautiful patina. The color is achieved by first dyeing the textile with indigo, then overdoing with yellow, possibly of a botanical source.

Dimensions: 38.5  x 42.5 inches, 32.5 x 177 centimeters
Late 19th to early 20th century
