A White, Green and Purple Sakiori Obi: Rag Weave
mid twentieth century
116" x 6 1/2", 294 cm x 16.5 cm
This is a lovely sakiori obi, or a rustic, traditional kimono sash that is woven using shredded cloth as its weft yarn.
The very fine, possibly rayon warp yarns are white in color. The weft yarns are of even spaced bars of white, mottled deep green and purple--a very restrained palette..
This lovely obi is in good, used condition with few, if any, defects that are noticeable in normal lighting.
A beautiful, handsomely colored folk textile.
