This is an antique large noren with lovely plovers and wave design, which is dyed vivid with Tsutsugaki
It has dyed two large kamons.
This item is from early Meiji Period (1868-1912) or earlier.
Warp yarns seem to be hand spun cotton, and weft seems to be hand plied asa(ramie).
Textile is thick and has medium and comfortable touch.
Deep natural ai color is so attractive.
It has patinas and discolorations in the white patterned parts because of its old age. (refer 4th flaw photo)
However, ai color still keeps its beauty, and it is in very good condition for an antique piece.
There are some other flaws.
Please check detail figure and photos.
