Description
 
Double-sided woven design in teal gray and white that looks to us like a stylized butterfly. In one band of design the butterfly is centered and in the other it is offset. The colors are reversed on each side. Between the design are wide bands of plain cream silk. Soft and flexible.

There is one patched area, see photo, which suggests that this obi was either quite beloved by its original owner or too valuable to readily replace during austere times. Probably both.

This is a han obi - the most casual level of formality to use with everyday kimono and usually tied in a simple bow. Appropriate for a man or woman.
