Shown here is a thickly woven, nicely textured obi, or a traditional kimono sash.

The visual effect of this thickly woven obi is of a regulated, well-patterned, red and white checkerboard.

The weft yarns are red in color and the warp yarns are red and white, the combination and the way they are woven is the reason for the checkerboard effect. 

A beautifully patterned rustic obi in good condition appropriate with its age.
