Two-Tone “Tsutsugaki” Furoshiki -Fan & Peony-
This is a one of a kind piece with intricate patterns of fan and peony, dyed in two-tone indigo. The pattern making technique used here is called “Tsutsugaki.” The artisan drew the pattern freehand on the fabric with a bamboo tube filled with rice paste (rice paste works as a resist to create the pattern). The dyer went through multiple dips to create this two-tone color with pitch dark background. Fans and peonies are symbols of auspicious occurrences and festivities. The piece is said to have belonged to an upper-class family in Kyushu and was used as "Furoshiki" (wrapping cloth).
Excellent vintage condition. Great for a wall drop, a bed or sofa cover.
140 x 123cm (55.1 x 48.4 inches)
100% cotton, Made in Japan
