Katazome is a surface design process used for centuries in Japanese textile decoration, especially with cloth destined to become kimonos. For centuries artists used a resist paste from a rice flour mixture and apply this paste to cloth through the use of elaborately hand carved stencils.  Wherever the paste is applied will resist the dye, creating a pattern. Traditionally Katazome is paired with indigo to create the iconic white and dark blue of many Japanese textiles.

A nice collectors piece, to hang as textile art or use your products.
