beautiful kasuri

half kimono

This cotton kasuri fabric was given to me by my friend Atsuko in exchange for some bobbin lace i brought her. The Japanese and gift giving!
It was a whole kimono tan that i cut up in half to share with a mutual friend. Handwoven in very fine cotton it has both double and single kasuri motifs.
The fuzzy selvedges so that the woven design matches the resist design is something that i find endearing.

You can watch this video showing the tying of kasuri motifs. It was hard to resist those frothy indigo vats :)

  1. Wow what a piece! this is incredibly beautiful - yes I love htose selvedges also.

  2. great video, i love to see those threads stretched out on the landscape like that.

  3. simply gorgeous, I'd hang it on the wall just like that! Love love it.

  4. I agree, that is stunning fabric. I wanted to tell you that I visited Barcelona this past month and I loved the modern art (Picasso Museum and Gaudi architecture) and the food (e.g. paella, croquettes, and sangria)!

  5. Thank you so much Neki! My husband took me to Barcelona and he planned the whole trip. I hope to go there again, it is a wonderful city (with wonderful people)!


interaction appreciated!
