We repaired several loose seams and washed this textile.

This textile is ready to use in your project or to hang as wall art.
Comments Zanshi kasuri is unusual. This textile has a more or less consistent pattern with 2/4 bars running lenght-wise on each panel. This consistency is created only because of the regular pattern warp (length) threads. But the weft (width) threads are leftover (zanshi) from previous weavings These threads show an inconsistent pattern, resulting in the thin stripe effect.
