"Amazing Embroidery" Fukuro Obi

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. Usually, there is a one yard "blank" section on the front, as is common with contemporary fukuro obi, where some cost can be saved by leaving it blank where the first wrap layer of the belt portion occurs, since it doesn't show to the public. This obi is only patterned in two sections - the wider bow section features the elaborately embroidered fan pattern, and the belt portion features two smaller iterations of a similar fan pattern so that if one side gets soiled, the other side can be used.

A celebratory cream silk with a golden sheen adds an elegance and opulence to the piece. The embroidered designs really merit close examination. All hand stitched couching, so tightly and expertly done - this must have taken many weeks and much skill to complete.

Folding fans with pine and swirling water.
