Boro kakejiku – Vintage Japanese soy sauce cotton textile

784-2

Reversible rhythmic abstraction with aesthetic unconsciousness of maturity and mending patches and stitches. Composed of three fragments of well-used cotton textile of ‘shoyu-bukuro’ (bag used for making soy sauce), then sewn together vertically (like a ‘kakejiku’ (hanging scroll) if hung on the wall) by the predecessor as an intentional arrangement (design). Showa period, 20th century. approx. 157.5 x 42cm (62.00 x 16.53in)
