Tsutsugaki Yogi Panel With Noshi, Peony, And Bamboo Shoot Motif


Back fragment of an indigo cotton yogi—it's lining, collar and sleeves have been removed. 

A yogi is an oversized, stuffed kimono that is used much like a blanket or quilt for warmth. 

In the center is the family crest, a large peony and two bamboo shoots, hand drawn using a tsutsugaki dye technique, or rice paste resist. Below, two large noshi are depicted. Noshi are essentially a ceremonial knot made of dried abalone strips.   

In excellent condition.

Mid 20th century
Dimensions: 32" x 68"
