"Imperial Carts" Obi Tapestry

A dramatic decor piece, this tapestry is a re-purposed length of fukuro obi - a very formal obi that would be appropriate for a wedding. Gold background with an impressively woven set of imperial carts surrounded by florals and traditional motifs.

The opening at the top can accommodate a 1.5" diameter rod.

See the video below for more information on traditional obi weaving.
We create these tapestries by salvaging the designed hem area of a kimono when other sections of the garment are beyond repair or rescue. We keep the processing simple, retaining the original lining and stitching (usually hand done) and simply finishing off the upper edge to allow a display rod (up to 1.5" diameter) to be inserted across the top.
Click the option above to purchase one of our display rods (as shown in the photo) at a discount.
