"Katazome" Dyed Fabric Panel, Brown Tortoiseshell Pattern
From SRI: "Katazome is a resist dye technique in which a paste of rice flour and bran is applied to cloth through a cut paper stencil. This paste is applied with a flat, blunt tool or a brush: where the paste has been pushed onto the cloth, dye will not penetrate."
