Description
 
"Snowy Mountains" Fukuro Obi

Beautifully woven design of mountain peaks in a golden brown peeking through a blizzard of white clouds. The snow is white and gold and seems to drip down the slopes.

The fold line shows that this was lovingly worn by its original owner, and there is some mottling in the white areas - the unpatterned area on the front and scattered along the white backside. These blemishes wouldn't show when the obi is worn and could be hidden when it is displayed. Priced accordingly.

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. See the video below to learn about the different styles of obi as well as ways to use them in your decor.
