Item details

Japanese Orange Obi Orange Crane Bird Phoenix Textile Table Runner Traditional Japanese Silk Damask Antique Fabric Asian Table Cloth

I bought this in an antique shop in Kamakura, Japan a few years back. It appears to be part of an obi waist tie cloth or perhaps a piece of material for another purpose. The pattern is woven in as a damask representing phoenix fire birds and Paulownia tree foliage. In Asian lore, the Phoenix fire bird, a mystical, mythical bird representing rebirth and renewal from its own ashes, lands only on the Paulownia or Empress tree, a real tree characterized by large leaves and purple flowers.
Being antique, there are some marks/blemishes but overall in fair condition with excellent antique character. It would make gorgeous pillows, incorporated into a project of yours, a table runner as is, etc. I believe it's silk or some combination of silk and something else.
About 13" by 60.75" with edges on long sides finished/selvage edge and short sides raw. Meaning the loom it was woven on was 13" wide.
