"Two-Sided Surprise" Maru Obi

This is a maru obi - the highest level of formality - and it is wide for the entire length, with the same brocaded silk patterning on both sides. This would be worn for a wedding or similarly formal event.

This obi is the first we've ever seen with two different fabrics! They are well-matched in terms of color and complementing design, but this type of obi would normally have the same fabric front and back.

One side features cranes and treasure carts with various florals and pine. The other side features folding fans and thread spools filled with smaller repeat patterns. Bright colors on both sides against a light tan background.

There are a few scattered blemishes on both sides but they do not detract from the incredible display this would make.

Maru obi make elegant table runners or dramatic wall displays. Check out our display rods for obi.
