This is cloth of indigo dyeing cotton made in Aichi in the Meiji era. It colors the both sides (Ryoumensome) with the same paper pattern. Ryoumensome could use both sides, but the quantity of the work of the dyeing was double. Most Katazome dyes only one side. Because a craftsmAn imitated Shibori of the Narumi district, this Katazome is called NarumiKongata. And Narumikongata expresses delicate rhythm of Sibori smart in Katazome. There are no damage and stain. It is spun by Hand and dyed with an indigo plant of nature. The last image represents the both sides at the same time.Okuri:21cm(8.2") Size: 137cm x 108cm (53.9 "x 42.5")
