Description

This is a maru obi – the highest level of formality – & it is wide for the entire length, with the same brocaded silk patterning on both sides. This would be worn for a wedding or similarly formal event. This obi is in the rich bronze tones that are reminiscent of the Meiji Period, but is a more contemporary example, with a texture that invites petting. The design includes hundreds of single pine needles in the background & a raised floral & leaf pattern. Look closely to see some small characters in black between the pine needles – it looks like a grid of four-petaled flowers surrounding what could be the kanji for “field”. Maru obi make elegant table runners or dramatic wall displays. Approximate size is 13in wide by 9.5yds long Material: Silk Condition: Excellent Vintage Looking to display this obi?
