This listing is for a fukuro obi (see style description below) with a festive feel - bright gold and orange are sunny and uplifting. The pattern is a diamond grid with most diamonds filled with stylized pine boughs, with long, thin needles ending in a little gold trio. The borders of the grid are multi-colored - adding to the festivities!

Fukuro obi are a formal and semi-formal style of obi belt suitable for special occasions and should be worn with a formal kimono, though they also make beautiful tapestry displays or runners for table, piano, mantle, or book case.

The obi is approximately 14" wide and 9' long, with patterning on one side only. The backside is typically a solid color, and the same solid color fabric appears for an approximately one yard section on the front, patterned side. (This "blank" area would be where the first wrap layer of the belt portion occurs - never seen by the public - and would reduce the cost of an already expensive item.)

See the videos below to learn about the different styles of obi as well as ways to use them in your decor. If you're planning to display the obi, consider adding one of our 30" wooden display rods to your order.
