"Woven Roof Tiles" Fukuro Obi

A combination of designs that stumps us a bit. The wide woven patterning suggests a basketweave but the shape and accent suggest both bamboo joints and the ceramic roof tiles. This obi is a bright combination of orange and gold - sure to evoke conversation and admiration.

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.
