This fabric was used for old silk kimonos about 100 years ago.


The fabric is dyed in several different Katazome and Kasuri techniques and then hand-sewn into a patchwork.


Katazome is a Japanese method of indigo dyeing fabrics using a resist paste applied through a stencil, typically a rice flour mixture applied with a brush or a tool such as a palette knife.


The term "Kasuri" can refer to both the technique and the finished textile. Kasuri involves resist dyeing, where parts of the yarn are tightly bound before dyeing to create a pattern. The bound areas resist the dye, creating the characteristic blurred or mottled design.


Please note that this cloth is a very thin and fragile silk fabric.


Measures: cm×121cm (26in × 47in)
