This cover is sure to provide an impressive pop of color and style for any home. Made from a Japanese nagoya obi, this pillow cover feature a jigami (fan shape) surrounded by ume (plum blossoms) with vibrant tones of blue, gold, and red background squares.

The backing is taken from the back of the obi with blue on top and the deep burgundy red on the bottom. Zipper closure.

Please NOTE that because the fabric came from a nagoya obi, there is some slight loosening of the weave down the middle where the obi was folded over to form the belt portion of the sash.

An obi is the beautiful "sash" tied around a kimono. The front panel of an obi is usually woven and is a heavier silk, while the back is in a solid color silk. Obis are only 12" wide at the widest part. Because this fabric was part of a used obi there may be minor flaws (pinholes, snags) in the fabric.

All my pillow covers have reinforced seams where the back panels overlap, and edges are overstitched to minimize fabric fraying. Please note that all pillow forms fit differently and you may either want to use a form slightly larger or smaller than the size of the pillow depending on your personal preference. Pillow cover is fully lined in cotton/polyester blend. Recommend professional dry clean only.

Finished size is approximately 11.5" x 18"
