I’ve recently returned from a buying trip to Japan and have been overwhelmed with inventorying the beautiful things I purchased there, so blog entries needed to take a back seat to logging in new textiles. But I had to bring this one forward for you to see. It’s an unusual and very beautiful pieced cotton furoshiki with marvelously sashiko stitched corners. And it’s seemingly unused.
This beauty probably dates to the 1930s or so and it measures 49″ x 44″ or 124.5 cm x 111.75 cm.
