Azure Faded Furoshiki

360.00

As far as the beauty of faded indigo can go, this item is absolutely stunning. The cloth is more than 100 years old and has been carefully sashiko-stitched. It also displays an unusual sign. The first part of it means mountain, and below is the character for “beginning”. Maybe it was a creative way of writing the surname “Yamamoto”. On the other side, the word “Fuji” is written. The towel is large and called a “Furoshiki”. These are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth traditionally used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods.

History

Meiji period, around 1890s. Kawagoe, central Japan.

Cotton homespun and hand-loomed. All natural dyeing techniques.

Measurements   

135 x 130 cm

53,1 x 51,1 in

  • Great condition of fabric
  • Wonderful to display or wear
  • Vivid blue colors with sashiko stitching on the sides
  • The fabric has been professionally cleaned and carefully ironed to preserve the organic dye

Note

  • Premium item
  • Outstanding color and fabulous fade of indigo
