This is a katazome indigo-dyed cotton fragment.  The faded colors are very beautiful.

 

Katazome is a Japanese technique of stencil resist dyeing that involves drawing rice-paste designs on cloth, dyeing the cloth, and then washing off the paste.

 

This one is printed with landscapes and Chinese characters. It is a very old item. It has not been washed to preserve its texture.
