This listing is for one length (see measurement above) of vintage Japanese obi fabric. It comes from a semi-formal obi with a stiff, sturdy weight - great for pillows, table runners, or outerwear.

The colors are reversed on each side - silver and maroon - with a design of medallions, each filled with two fighting figures - one is a griffin-like creature and the other may be a tiger.

Orders for continuous yardage will be honored where possible.

PLEASE NOTE: This fabric is at least 50 years old and was likely worn by its previous owner to formal events, such as wedding or receptions. Though we deconstruct the items carefully, you will likely see seam lines (which can often be ironed out). And while we cut around any significant signs of age or use, slight and occasional blemishes are possible and may need to be worked around or trimmed away. The inspiring designs, masterful hand work, and ageless beauty of vintage Japanese textiles make all the extra work so worthwhile.
