A Brightly Colored Sakiori Obi: Saturated Colors

$95.00 USD

mid twentieth century
106" x 6", 269 cm x 15 cm

This is a lovely sakiori obi, or a rustic, traditional kimono sash that is woven using shredded cotton cloth as its weft yarn.

Its coloration is based in wide, colored bars of irregular widths that travel up the length of the obi, some solid, some mottled.

The warp yarns are white cotton and the rough rag weft yarns give a nice texture to this obi.

This kimono sash is in good, used condition--it is sturdy and the colors are handsome.

A beautiful, richly toned folk textile in a fairly unusual color palette and a good example of a sakiori obi.
