Item #21983 - Obi (Fukuro)
description
This is a beautiful vintage Japanese fukuro obi. It is richly woven with metallic threads and grey silk threads. This obi is woven with bronze, gold and silver threads and these reflect the light to create different and stunning effects. Fukuro obis are traditionally 70% covered with patterns and the reverse is usually plain or unpatterned. This obi is 70% patterned as shown in the photos and the remainder is a wide stripe in grey with alternating metallic bronze and gold interwoven silk threads. The reverse is the same as the plain part of the front. This obi would look terrific as a wall hanging, a table runner or across the end of a bed.
