This patchwork runner I made from antique Japanese kimono silks. Some pieces are vintage but the back and most of the piecework is from antique kimono and obi fabric. The back is from an antique obi that features hand-embroidered books. It was very worn and I decided to leave the fold marks because it's a piece of history and I think it's right to leave it as is. There is an old black kimono used in the back also with a family crest in the middle.

I have added lining to give it a little structure like an obi in its original form. I have patched up similar colors so it has a color scheme of oranges and red. This is a versatile piece that you can use in many different ways. You can even knot it to use shorter under a vase or other display elements. You can use it on chests, table centers, at the foot of the bed and as a wall hanging. The piece is finished with four larger silk chinese buttons as an accent.
