Item #20377 - Obi (Fukuro)
description
This is a beautiful vintage Japanese fukuro obi. It is richly woven with metallic threads and silk threads and features Japanese flowers. The background colour is a very deep olive green silk with mottled gold throughout. Fukuro obis are traditionally 70% covered with patterns and the reverse is usually plain or unpatterned. This obi is 70% patterned as shown in the photos and the remainder is a deep olive silk with running parallel gold threads. The reverse is a plain deep olive coloured silk. This obi would look terrific as a wall hanging, a table runner or across the end of a bed.
