This is a futon cover with rare and modern pattern ( probably the Big Dipper or the Septentrions ) which is katazome ( stencil-dye ). It is made of hand-spun cotton and natural indigo dyed. It has thick texture. In good condition but has some indigo faded parts and a few mending patches in the back. The seams in the middle and both in the top as well as in the bottom are sewn by machine. Late 19th to mid 20th century. 188cm x 189cm
