Textile fragment with rosettes and band with floral shapes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Six-petalled rosettes made up from dots, with a dot at the centre; band with floral motifs: one daisy-shaped with twelve petals, the other a quatrefoil with four additional small leaves. The band has three rows of dots along both sides. The resist defines the design, the background is blue.

    A finely sewn seam holds together the fragments at their selvedge. The internal measurements can be refined and are: a) warp 12 cm., weft 16 cm.; b) warp 11 cm., weft 11 cm. The textile was sewn together prior to block-printing and dyeing. It is curious that the thread used for the seam is s-spun, which is not common in Indian cotton thread. Also published in Barnes 1990: 191, fig. 7.
