      Iindigo dyed cotton boro futon cover reassembled from a sleeping yogi. The large flower motif is a kamon or a family crest, and it shows a stylized paulownia flower. Paulownia, or kiri, is the only terrestrial object that the legendary Chinese and Japanese phoenix will alight upon, and the phoenix will drink dew from the petals of this flower. This kamon, and the other flower motives shown on this repurposed yogi, were applied using a the tsutsugaki method of freehand paste resist dyeing.
