Large "Katazome" Dyed Furoshiki, Indigo and Sumi

From SRI: "Japan's mended and patched textiles are referred to as boro, or ragged, both in Japan and abroad. Boro textiles are usually sewn from nineteenth and early twentieth century rags and patches of indigo dyed cotton. In most cases, the beautiful arrangement of patches and mending stitches is borne of necessity and happenstance, and was not planned by the maker.

"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."
