Vintage Butterfly Design Obi
Beautiful Green, Gold and White Butterfly Design Vintage Obi from Japan, made of silk
166 inches in length 12 inches in width
In excellent condition, no tears or thread runs. An obi is used to tie around a woman wearing a kimono. A fukuro obi is made so that the part that will not be visible when worn is smooth with the solid color only. That is the case with this fukuro obi. I use my many obi for decorating, either as a table runner or table display. I display my Kokeshi Nativity Set on an obi similar to this one. All of the obi at Kokeshi Designs are one of a kind. An original obi can cost in the thousands of dollars, so happy to be able to provide a reasonable, beautiful obi for my Kokeshi Designs customers.
