Fabric Description: Deadstock, never used, Japanese vintage kasuri (ikat) cotton fabric; Because it has images, this type is sometimes called e-gasuri (lit. picture-kasuri).
Fabric Type: Kasuri (ikat), lightweight, slightly firm (not stiff); black fabric with a grid of geometric figures and unknown (odd irregular shape, possibly water/ stream?) evenly aligned; designs are mostly rhombic (diamond) shaped of same size (2 inches/5.08cm tall) rows and columns are symmetrically arrayed diagonally; same on both sides; figures are in white and light gray.
This is an unused Japanese country vintage fabric called kasuri (also called ikat in Southeast Asia; ) ; Kasuri is a labor-intensive process where patterns are made by pre-dyed paste resistance and varying techniques used to create the sorts of patterns seen here. Because of the methods used, authentic kasuri is usually highly expensive. More info on kasuri below:
