Tstutsugaki Indigo Furoshiki

Regular price $275.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.
Late 19th - early 20th century  hand-woven,  hand-dyed indigo cotton  furoshiki wrapping cloth.  Approx 130cm x 130cm , it is a deep rich, inky indigo.  The corners have been reinforced with sashiko stitching before it was dyed.  Large wrapping cloths like this were used for carrying and storing all manner of goods. With a  kamon family crest in the centre it may have been made  to transport a  bride's trousseau to her new home.  It has little stretching or wear so it hasn't had a hard life.  The paulownia kamon  has been hand drawn  with a rice paste resist before dyeing (tsutsugaki method).  It's not the finest example  of tsutsugaki  but has it's own rustic charm!
