This is a maru obi - the highest level of formality - and it is wide for the entire length, with the same brocaded silk patterning on both sides. This would be worn for a wedding or similarly formal event.

This obi is in the rich bronze tones that are reminiscent of the Meiji Period, but is a more contemporary example, with a texture that invites petting. The design includes hundreds of single pine needles in the background and a raised floral and leaf pattern. Look closely to see some small characters in black between the pine needles - it looks like a grid of four-petaled flowers surrounding what could be the kanji for "field".

Width - 13.5in
Length - 13ft
Maru obi make elegant table runners or dramatic wall displays.
