"Lozenge Grid" Fukuro Obi

The shape of each cell in this grid is "pine lozenge", referring to the bark of the pine tree. The inner diamond shape of each cell is filled with one of two traditional family crests in gold: mums alternate with paulownia.

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