Vintage Japanese Silk Obi Red Gold Silver Marriage Obi with Chrysanthemum Flowers, Red Vintage Japanese Obi Fabric 3 pieces, TresorsDuJour
This beautiful vintage Japanese Obi belt / Japanese fabric would make a unique table runner or used in craft projects. There are three pieces, all double sided (folded lengthwise and sewn over, so there is double the width available), taken apart and laid flat, there might even be enough fabric for a small jacket, skirt, or a cocktail dress, if paired with a plain red silk.
An Obi is traditionally used to tie closed a kimono, adding accent color and pattern.
A lovely vintage Obi, possibly from the 1960's,features the beautiful traditional Japanese motif of stylised chrysanthemums embroidered in metallic silver and gold. The motifs are embroidered onto a red background, typical of the formal attire used for a Japanese wedding.
This piece is in wonderful vintage condition, there is just one spot where the embroidery has undone by a thread. It could be used as an Obi belt or converted into a unique table runner, wall hangings, bags, centerpieces of patchwork, cushions or any other craft or quilting projects as there is quite a lot of fabric.
MEASUREMENTS: There are three separate pieces, all included in one price with this listing:
1. 12 1/4 inches x 36 inches (remember it is doubled, so there is twice this available: (currently tacked into folded position for a partial obi placement - see photos - easily undone if desired).
2. 12 1/4 inches x 16 1/2 inches (doubled);
3. 12 1/4 inches x 53 1/2 inches (doubled).
Unfolded, the total surface of embroidered silk would measure 25 inches by 106 inches.
This vintage piece was bought at a textile auction in Paris.

Shipping & policies
SHIPPING is done within 1 to 2 business days under normal circumstances. See individual item for specifics. Shipping is usually done by insured and registered parcel post, USPS or Fedex / UPS (for more expensive items) once we have received payment (see above). The amount of time the parcel may take to reach you depends on where you are located and the time of year (for example, near the Christmas holiday season be sure to allow for more time for the package to reach you).
SHIPPING TO BUSINESS ADDRESS: If you are having your item delivered to a business address, please be sure to notify us. We will mark the package 'personal' and in care of your business to be sure that it reaches you intact. We cannot be held responsible for packages that go missing once delivered to your business address, and opened by a third party.
*** PLEASE NOTE that the shipping costs that are listed are just for basic shipping charges, with tracking number. If you wish additional insurance, just let us know and we will add the sum to your order - please note that insurance charges via Fedex and USPS (this is a standard amount) are $3.00 for every $100 insured. If the client opts out of additional insurance for their package, we will not be held responsible for lost packages; there will be no refund or replacement article if the item is 'lost' and the client has opted not to purchase the full value insurance for the item.
We are happy to COMBINE ITEMS to economize on shipping costs, but sometimes this isn't possible. When it comes to the more expensive items, especially jewelry, the items must be insured separately and the shipping costs reflect for the most part this insurance cost. If you would like to combine more than one item in your package, please contact us and we will see what we can do to provide you with a custom combined shipping quote.
SHIPPING UPGRADES are possible. If the upgrade you desire is not listed with the item, please contact us and we will provide you an estimate for the upgrade you desire. NOTE that 'two day service', for example, to international destinations, only means it will arrive in the country of destination within two days. It does not take into account customs delays or local shipment complications. Please allow extra time for your package to arrive
IMPORTATION DUTIES to Canada have been paid, but there may be a further importation tax to pay upon shipment to you if you live outside of Canada, Items over 100 years old will be declared as antique and many countries do not assess duties and taxes on such items, but some do - you may want to check with your post office or Customs for your country's protocol for such items. If you have specific customs declaration requirements, please let us know. All items will be declared for their full purchase price. ANY AND ALL CUSTOMS' DUTIES, BROKERAGE FEES OR TAXES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER.
For International (not USA) customers, remember there may be DELAYS AT CUSTOMS. These are beyond our control and you should allow several days' margin for your delivery date just in case this happens. Allow at least an extra week during the month of December.
*** WE DO NOT SHIP TO INDONESIA, some parts of China or South Africa ***
***RUSSIA CUSTOMERS*** Please be aware that shipping to your country is high risk. Many packages seem to never reach their destination. Please be advised that if you order something from us, you do so at your own risk. For this reason normal insurance isn't available though USPS. I can ship priority which will provide more or less tracking number (apparently in Russia, this is a little spotty - hence no insurance) Should the item go missing, we will not be held responsible and will not issue a refund.
PAYMENTS can be made by credit cards or via paypal. We accept layaways, as long as regular payments are made over a maximum 10 month period, depending on the total amount. Please contact us to set this up if you this interests you.

It is not instantaneous, so be patient. Due to various fraudulent efforts out there, we have to wait for the payment to go through before we can process your order.
If paying by PAYPAL, please note that we will only ship to your registered PAYPAL ADDRESS.

All returned and canceled orders can be subject to a 5% restocking fee, depending on the item.

If there is a problem, please contact us and we will do our best to rectify it, even if it means having the item shipped back to us for changes (which to date, has never been necessary). The additional insured shipping charges, however, will be the purchaser's responsibility. In the worst case scenario we will exchange the custom order against other merchandise of lesser or equal value. Again, there are no refunds on custom orders, and this includes deposits.

The same applies if you have provided us with an incomplete or inaccurate delivery address.
