Japanese Katazome Wedding Futon-ji Fabric Edo
This old katazome fabric depicts circles of cranes and turtles, which implies that the fabric was made for wedding celebration. The katazome fabric is made from relatively thicker hand-spun cotton (almost a vintage jeans like texture) and beautifully aged and faded. Pine, bamboo, and plum (sho-chiku-bai) also make auspicious circles, along with karakusa-grass pattern. This katazome fabric is made from 2 width unit (futa-haba) and they are stitched. The back of the katazome is slightly darker in indigo color. There is a small hole (approximately 1.5" wide as shown on a photo) , otherwise it is in great condition. Ca. Mid to late 1800s. Dimensions:27.5" wide 66" long
