An elegant formal obi that is just as lovely worn with a formal kimono as it would be as a decor piece at a special party or event. The white background suggests perhaps a wedding....?

The white background is a tightly woven set of basketweave bands arranged in diamond shapes, with a four-petaled flower in the center. Angled lines - offset diamond shapes? - are woven on top of the white in orange and green. Those lines really pop!

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. There is a one yard "blank" section on the front, as is common with contemporary fukuro obi, where some cost can be saved by leaving it blank where the first wrap layer of the belt portion occurs, since it doesn't show to the public.
