Yogi (sleeping robe) of indigo-dyed kasuri cotton, Japanese, San’in region, mid to late 19th century. The process of kasuri (Japanese ikat) arrived in Japan in the 19th century, and reached the San’in region (the SW of Honshu island) around 1850. This yogi, which would have been stuffed with cotton wadding to be worn during the night, features kasuri designs of a yellow square lattice containing geometric motifs and kame (tortoises) on clouds in e-gasuri (weft-dyed pictorial ikat) and double kasuri (warp- and weft-dyed ikat). Kame were a symbol of longevity often depicted on futon covers and yogis. Together with the auspicious clouds, the kame represent a wish for long life and prosperity for the wearer. #japanesetextiles#yogi#sanin#kasuri#ikat#indigo#19thcentury#coraginsburg
