Item details

A deep indigo blue hand dying and hand wavering vintage cotton fabric from early 20 century. The patterns: Pine + Gunbai by ikat weaving technique. The patterns are auspicious patterns, wishing of good luck in the life. It was resist dyed before the weaving. The patterns are appearing at the backside as well, so it could be used reversible way. The indigo color is very deep nearly black yet not black.

The fabric was a part of duvet / Futon cover, light weighted and in a good vintage condition. There is no remarkable holes and snags, yet there are some traces of loosening duvet at the edge of textile and some feeling of aging. Please take it as a vintage/used textile, and you would use it with your lovely idea !

It came from the West Japan, Sanin / 山陰 area. We think that it is Yumihama gasuri / 弓浜絣
which is well known for auspicious patterns that exactly this textile has. One can easily sense the love and wisdom of a woman who chooses a certain pattern to wish her loved ones good luck for their special life event. Women in the farming villages attended cotton fields during the day, and made and wove threads at night. Yumihama-Gasuri was a major industry in Tottori 18 century to pre war period. It was an important source of income for the families as well as crafting textile for family use. However the rapid industrialization made the time consuming Yumihama-Gasuri method almost obsolete, with a lack of skillful successors to keep the craft alive. ** part of the text extracted from
