"Japanese kesa were used by monks as wraps or altar cloths and made from the finest donated textiles." - Cherie Fehrman -
This beautiful antique textile is comprised of silk squares fitted together to form a cloth that was traditionally used as an altar cloth or as a cloak for monks. Wealthy patrons often donated their best silk fabric to the temples for this use. This lovely piece is in very good condition for its age with only minor water staining on one section of the lining. It's generous size would make a magnificent wall hanging or bed topper.
