Furoshiki -Kudarijufi (Dropping Wisteria)-
This is a one of a kind piece with a print of “Kudarifuji" or Dropping wisteria. 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 resist to create the pattern). The dyer went through multiple dips to create this two-tone color with pitch dark background. The piece supposedly belonged to an upper class family and was used as a futon cover for guests.
