Description
 
This antique obi may be from the 1940s or earlier. It is a wonderful example of both the creativity of Japanese design - in this case the contrasting back side of the bow section of the obi is a bright floral in blues and greens. The front side is an orange and cream floral brocade. Look closely to note the color banding in the weave.

It's an older piece - still wearable by a gentle hand, but also a fantastic collector's piece.

This is a nagoya obi where the width is folded over and sewn together for about two thirds of the length - this is the portion that is wrapped around the waist. In this case, the belt section is only the orange floral, but the bright blue side could be highlighted or subtly tucked underneath depending on how you tied the bow.
