"Splashes" Fukuro Obi

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. 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.

We called this one "Splash" because the water wave motif as well as the surging leaves that envelop it. Those rolling waves in orange and blue zigzag down the front of this obi and smaller designs -- florals, butterflies, and phoenix -- fill the arching bands along the way. Solid orange back and front blank area.

If you'd like ideas on how to decorate with an obi, we recommend this book - "Design with Japanese Obi" - which you can purchase on amazon.com.
