Description
 
This listing is for one length (see measurement above) of vintage Japanese obi fabric. It comes from formal maru obi that would have been worn to a formal event. Watch the video below to learn more about traditional Japanese weaving.

This fabric is a smooth, fine weave in a deep olive green-brown color with a pattern of pine - cones and boughs and needles - an auspicious motif for many centuries. The palette and the patterning are both reminiscent of Old Japan, when only natural dyes were used and finely detailed designs were prized.

The backside is as smooth as the front - see last photo.

Orders for continuous yardage will be honored where possible.

PLEASE NOTE: This fabric is at least 50 years old, from an obi that 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.
