Textile fragment imitating bandhani, or tie-dye, with stars and inverted hooks

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Bandhani imitation in band arrangements, with a six-pointed star and inverted hook motif. The pattern is as in Cat. no. 66 [EA1990.74], which is dyed with indigo. The design is white against a brown background.

    Selvedge; a rolled hem sewn with blue thread is opposite it. Additional mending at right angles to the selvedge is done with white thread. The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. The dye analysis has shown that the colorant that produced the dark brown was alizarin with purpurin, the source of which was Rubia tinctorum L.
