Cotton Kurume kasuri futonji with a ship motif. Kurume in Fukuoka Pref. in Kyushu has been one of the main product places of indigo dyed cotton kasuri since late Edo period (early 19th century). It is made of hand-spun cotton that means probably it was made before Meiji 15 (1882) and natural indigo dyed. The last photo and the information are from the book "Ai no Hana Orinasu Kasuri" published by Ai Kobo in 1998. It also has hand-spun cotton and natural indigo dyed lining. In excellent condition and looks scarcely used. Late 19th century. 156cm x 188cm
