Description
 
Very vintage futon cover with a buttery yellow checkerboard background and a series of floating florals in red, green and purple. Silver leaf edging on the petals. The front is five long panels sewn together.

But what we love most about this is the green cotton border and backing, which looks to us like the green color that comes from being dyed with gardenia.

The back side is a dark maroon with a center slit where a blanket or futon could be inserted. Note the size dimensions which are not typical of western blankets.

We're also intrigued by all of the hand-done seams and the hand-stitched repairs that make this textile delightfully "wabi sabi".
