$95.00 USD

mid twentieth century
108" x 5", 274.5 cm x 12.5 cm 

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

The warp yarns are of fine, white, red and deep blue dyed cotton and the weft yarns are fairly evenly spaced bars of cotton rag yarns in tones of steel blue, white, pink tomato red--and some golden metallic threads are also used..

The wide striped look of this obi is beautiful and modern and the design is fairly unusual 

This rag woven obi is in good, used condition.
