Vintage Japanese black silk obi with gold and silver design framed in red
The gold and silver designs framed in the red against the black is stunning. This is a Fukuro obi with the pattern on one side covering about sixty percent of the surface, the other forty percent being solid black. The back is solid black silk. Length is 149 inches so approx 12 feet. Width is 12 inches. I like the front designs but I also like the solid black silk back. Very easy to fold the front design onto the black back or fold in the opposite direction, black back onto the front design. This is a versatile obi. Gold and silver thread designs are beautiful. This obi is in excellent condition. One of a kind.
