Patched up Long Scarf

90.00

This is a long, beautiful panel of indigo-dyed cotton. A little mended several times, it was bought to be used to fix another piece of utility or to be sashiko-stitched together with other panels to create something. But as at least a century has passed, that day never came. The dye has a beautiful fade in its color, something which today is artificially created in chemical dyes such as jeans. Today these fabrics are extremely rare. This scarf makes for a beautiful accessory, such as an elegant neck scarf. It also displays well from either side; one is patched up while the other is plain azure blue.

History

Meiji, around 1900.

Fabric  

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

Measurements   

35 x 202 cm

79,5 x 13,8 in

0,2 kg

0,4 lbs

 

Condition

  • The fabric has been professionally cleaned and carefully ironed to preserve the organic dye
  • Solid indigo with a light fade
  • Several small patches
  • Beautiful as accessory such as a neck scarf
