Large sashiko stitched furoshiki 'Tanaka'

* From the collection of Stephen Szczepanek

 

ERA

Circa 1900

 

DESCRIPTION

A furoshiki is a traditional wrapping, carrying or hauling cloth which was ubiquitous in old Japan and is still used a good deal in modern Japan. This large example is typical of the type made in the mid-to-late 19th/ early twentieth century when cotton thread became widely available and was used to create stitched patterns on cloth. The stitching was done both for decoration and for adding strength to the furoshiki. This piece shows very good sashiko stitched motifs and bears the family name Tanaka which means this could have been made as part of a bridal trousseau or perhaps it was used at a shop whose name was Tanaka.
