This is hemp Katazome bedclothes used in Kyoto for Edo period. This was used in summer of Kyoto. As for this, a good-quality natural indigo plant of Kyoto is used. As for this, hemp thread is spun by hand. Taima-hemp which this was big, and was hard was thinned to the limit. And the fiber which became soft is used thin for this Yogi. There are two places of repair traces. There is a small stain near a collar, but does not stand out. The state is complete. This has cotton inside.Because I keep original form of Edo period, this is very rare. 2.2 kg in weight size 152cm x 134cm (59.8 "x 52.7")
