Kasuri Futon - Karume Kasuri Floral Diamonds And Squares
Kurume kasuri is woven with thread that is bound by hand, dyed with botanical indigo, and later woven on a hand-loom. The result is an especially finely woven cotton, in this case with a warp and weft ikat pattern.
The two "cluster" designs show floral arrangements in an alternating pattern of diamonds and squares. The placement of the patterns is somewhat irregular and emphasizes the unique movement of the cloth.
A beautiful example.
