Description
 
"Bronze Weave #1" Obi Tapestry

A narrow section of a very vintage - perhaps antique - nagoya obi in a lovely bronze color with pastel accents in the weave. The color and motif is classic for a maru (very formal) pre-WWII obi but it may have been converted to a nagoya style later in its life, which would explain how a formal fabric came to us in the semi-formal nagoya style.

See what can be done with an obi fragment? This is a fraction of a nagoya obi's original eleven foot length. We salvaged what we could, seamed the edges, and added a simple sleeve that will handle a rod up to 1" in diameter (not included). We will include a wooden chopstick, however, and that can work well at least temporarily.
