Item #22047 - Obi (Fukuro)
description
This is a beautiful vintage Japanese fukuro obi which features festival carts. It is richly woven with metallic threads and silk threads. Silver/grey/blue threads 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 and reverse are plain blue, smooth silk. This obi would look terrific as a wall hanging, a table runner or across the end of a bed. It appears to be unworn and does not have the traditional stiff core.
