A Narrow and Short Sakiori Obi: Unusual Dimensions

$60.00 USD

mid twentieth century
74" x 3 1/2", 188 cm x 9 cm

Shown here is a very short and narrow sakiori obi, which is a traditional kimono sash that has been woven from a weft of shredded, recycled cloth--in this case it is cotton.

The warp yarns are very fine and are black, brown and white in color which add a striped design and richness of color to the obi.

The weft rag yarns are greenish neutral tones that are punctuated with red toned horizontal bars.

A beautifully colored and textured sakiori obi in good, used condition appropriate with its age. 

Just lovely.
