Hand Dyed Indigo Katazome Blanket with Phoenix and Double Carp $150

150.00

This blanket was hand dyed with Indigo in Durham, NC using a process called katazome. This paste resist method of hand dying allows us to create the striking variation of deep indigo and crisp white. This is a textile based on 19th and early 20th century Chinese blankets. In the past these blankets were often given to newly married couples, as the symbols on the blankets convey wishes of love, happiness, protection and long life. This blanket is made up of three individual panels which have been sewn together, this is exactly how the originals were made in the 19th century. The base fabric is vintage Chinese cotton cloth which was woven on small manually operated looms during the 1960’s and 1970’s and sourced near Shanghai. This textile could be used for a hanging, tablecloth or throw. The fabric is 100% cotton and because it was hand loomed it has an amazing weight and texture, complete with irregular selvedges. These blankets vary in size slightly, but are approximately 56 inches wide by 69 inches long.

Can be washed in a machine using cold water with similar colors, tumble dry on low heat.
