Zanshi

4.85m unused zanshi cotton

$ 194.00
This is a very unusual piece  of  early - mid 20th century unused handwoven cotton.  It measures 35.5cm x 4.8m and is in excellent condition.   Zanshi textiles are woven using leftover thread - usually in the weft -  creating an irregular pattern. The indigo, grey and  white striped warp is  quite unusual  and very beautiful! The indigo stripe is  an irregular kasuri pattern also using leftover threads.
