This is an outstanding koto cover, the fabric is textured woven silk with red and white kanoko dot pattern. There is one hand stitched gold Mon, the Paulownia or Kiri Mon. The pair of cranes and pine needles are hand embroidered and the detail is fantastic! The reverse is high quality rinzu silk with crane, clouds and pine design. The dyed Mon is the Paulownia Mon and decoration is of stencil dyed cranes, clouds and pines, mirroring the rinzu fabric. The pale green and red make a stunning combination. Collector's item !
