Katazome Table Cloth C

Regular price $270 Unit price  per 

Description:
Katazome (型染め) is a Japanese method of dyeing fabrics using a resistance paste applied through a stencil.  Considered to be one of Japan's traditional folk crafts and part of the mingei movement, this green and white tablecloth is made through traditional katazome methods and showcases traditional graphic patterns.  The smaller size of this tablecloth make it suitable as a wall hanging or as an beautiful accent on the edge of a bed.

Variation:
This cloth is one-of-a-kind and entirely handmade.  There may be natural variation in the pattern due to its dyeing method.

History:
Katazome resistance dyeing is done by applying a rice flour mixture onto the desired fabric using a brush or a tool such as a palette knife. Pigment is then added by hand-painting, immersion or both. Where the paste mixture covers and permeates the cloth, the dye that's applied later will not penetrate the paste, and instead deeply dyes the uncovered fabric to create beautiful graphic patterns.

Measurement:
66'' x 46'' 

Materials:
Cotton canvas and dye

Care Instructions:
Spot clean by hand recommend.  Dry clean if necessary.
