Two small cotton wrapping clothes decorated with an exotic pattern and an overall design of scrolling vines, respectively. They show how changed production of such textiles in post-WWII Japan. From hand-loomed to machine-woven cotton, and from plain ground colours with family crest to overall designs still within the Japanese tradition though. Decorated in classical Tsutsugaki technique. Excellent condition overall. Nice and decorative.
