Vintage REPURPOSE Japanese silky obi sash or belt for kimono or yukata. Two pieces are stitched together measuring 182" long x 12 1/2" wide. The sash has raw edges on the ends. The sides were folded over and ironed, but are not stitched closed. However, this would be fully functional as a kimono sash if the sides are stitched closed. The purple is vibrant (on my monitor, most closely resembles the first photo in color.)
In very good vintage condition with no notable rips or holes, EXCEPT about 16" from the end there are a couple areas that are a lighter, faded strip (about an 1" wide and up to 3" long.) I tried to show that area in the 4th photo.)
