Item details

This is not a whole Obi

Beautiful panel from a Vintage Japanese Wedding Nagoya Obi with Real Gold Thread.

This item is very high quality vintage pure silk fabric carefully un-picked from a Japanese Nagoya Obi which is a formal sash worn by women at wedding or other ceremonies.

This exquisite piece of sumptious wedding Obi silk has a rich and detailed design with different illustrated square frames depicting scenes reminisent of those from the classical Japanese stories in "Tale of Genji"

Here a Noble Man and Woman, dressed in the elaborate court costumes of Heian Period Japan, embrace under the hanging branches of a Maple Tree, their floral decked Wedding Carriage, covered with Wisteria, Peony, Chrysanthemum, Cherry Blossom and Pine rests below beside a stream. The soft notes of a flute played by an Attendent sitting closeby drift throught the air. There is real gold foil (possibly 24k) in the threads which form the base and this gives the piece a wonderful rich sheen and shimmer as the light hits the surface of the silk.

This is a beautiful little piece of vintage silk in excellent condition, with just a few signs of its age, some creases, surface dirt and marks from age and wear.

I have not ironed the piece.


Total size is approximately 11.5ins wide by 20ins long.

You could use it to make a table runner, wall hangings, bags, centerpieces of patchwork, cushions or any other craft or quilting project.
