A Subtly Colored Sakiori Obi: White Warp, Multicolored Weft
mid twentieth century
116" x 6", 294 cm x 15 cm
This is a lovely sakiori obi, or a rustic, traditional kimono sash that is woven using shredded cloth as its weft yarn.
The warp yarns are of white cotton which colors the obi with an overall pale tone. The weft yarns are of dense, saturated colors which, when woven against a white warp, become muted and lovely.
This lovely obi is in good, used condition with few, if any, defects.
A beautiful, handsomely colored folk textile.
