Gradient Indigo Blues and Greens: Kaya or Hemp Mosquito Netting

Written on January 22, 2011

Kaya, or Japanese mosquito netting woven from hemp, is one of my favorite types of Japanese textiles.  Kaya’s open weave and its warm colors–ranging from natural to indigo to over-dyed indigo– are simply beautiful.Often the green colors are hard to convey in photographs as they are somewhere on the spectrum between blue and green.  That said, you may have to enrich the photos presented here with your imagination.

The texture is rustic and rich, and the weave is open.This configuration of blue and green kaya looks wonderful against the light.

Have a look at the tags to the right of this posting for previous discussions of kaya on this blog.
