This beautiful faded calico textile is called Wasarasa (Japanese calico).


Production of Japanese sarasa (calico) began in the Edo period when skillful Japanese dye workers found a method to inspire the designs of Indian calicos. 


This one has a plain textile sewn onto the sarasa textile. Some damaged areas have been repaired with Sashiko embroidery.


Material: cotton 100%


Measures: 33cm×194cm (12in × 76in)
