Description
 
This is a maru obi - the highest level of formality - but it is only half the width of the standard maru obi. ("Han" means "half" in Japanese.) This could be by design or more likely this obi was re-made from a wider obi (perhaps it was damaged or a more narrow obi was needed for the occasion). Like a maru obi, it is features a woven pattern on both sides with traditional motifs.

This obi features an antique orange background and a bird and floral medallion motif - the florals are silvery white and purple (!) and the birds are accented in bright blue. The bird shown is an Oo (or "Ho-o") bird similar to a phoenix.

The obi is 6 inches wide and 10 feet long. There are subtle signs of age but is in overall very good condition.

Maru obi make elegant table runners or dramatic wall displays.
