A Wide Sakiori Obi: Color Bars, Some Mottled

$95.00 USD

mid twentieth century
117" x 11 1/2", 297 cm x 29 cm

This is a good looking and quite wide 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 tones of mottled orange and a grey-maroon along with solid color bars of a dull pink, and a soft orange. that make their way up the length of the obi.

The warp yarns are of grey dyed cotton which give a softness of color and tone to the obi. This kimono sash is in good, used condition--it is sturdy and the colors are handsome. It shows a faint crease up the entire center of the obi which also indicates that it was folded when worn.

A beautiful, richly toned folk textile in a fairly unusual color palette--and a good example of a sakiori obi.
