      About the only thing that I can suggest is a dye pattern achieved by
      swirling black sumi or dye on the surface of water and then pulling the
      cloth through the pattern. This produces a random swirl pattern which
      does appear in the section of fabric pattern plates in Guide to
      Japanese Literature.
