"Bamboo Bounty" Fukuro Obi

This obi features a gold metallic background of tightly banded bamboo. Large orange-red florals are nested in a hexagon shape (suggesting tortoise shells, symbolizing long life). You'll also find bamboo leaves in yellow, green and red floating about.

A slightly more narrow width than other fukuro obi so perhaps this was for a young girl or teen.

Solid red on the backside.

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned only on the front. Usually, 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, however this obi is patterned the entire length.

If you'd like ideas on how to decorate with an obi, we recommend this book - "Design with Japanese Obi" - which you can purchase on amazon.com.
