Antique Katazome Futonji - Cranes and Noshi

Regular price $85.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Faded with lovely antique character this indigo katazome (stencil resist dyed) panel measures 34cm x 120cm and is double-sided .  Cranes and noshi ribbons  were traditional auspicious motifs for trousseau  items such as futon cover fabrics (futonji) and furoshiki wrapping cloths.  Although futonji only needs to be one-sided they often stencilled the rice paste resist on both sides of the fabric  as a precaution against the dye bleeding into the  white pattern.  As it is, there are some imperfections in the dyeing of this piece but I think that adds to the warmth of its character.  It is in  generally good condition but has a couple of very small holes. Late 19th - early 20th century. 

Price includes GST and regular postage  within Australia.
