Item #24366 - Vintage Cottons
description
This is a stunning vintage cotton fabric with a beautiful chrysanthemum design, which is dyed using the Tsutsugaki technique. Tsutsugaki (筒描) is a Japanese technique of resist dyeing that involves drawing rice-paste designs on cloth, dyeing the cloth, and then washing off the paste. The rice paste is typically made from sweet rice, which has a high starch content and is therefore rather sticky. This hand spun indigo dyed cotton is thick and was once a futon cover. It has some flaws such as light stains and one small repair near the centre edge. It does not have any holes. This piece would make a beautiful and unique wall hanging.
