100" x 5", 254 cm x 12.5 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 bars of rich tones of mottled purple, grey and striated orange that make their way up the length of the obi.

The warp yarns are of black dyed cotton which give depth of color and tone to the 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.
