Beautiful piece of fabric from a Vintage Japanese Fukuro Obi.
This item is vintage silk fabric carefully un-picked from a Japanese Fukuro Obi which is a formal sash worn by women at wedding or other ceremonies.
This piece of silk Obi has a beautiful "Rainbow Silver Pink Junihitoe Princess in Butterfly Kimono" design on a silver-white base. The Lady is dressed in the style of a Lady of the Henian Period, in a many layered (at least 7) Kimono, worn by Nobility and Ladies of the Court at this time and is shown sitting with her back to the viewer, her long hair falling freely over her shoulders and across her robes. She is highlighted by a pastel coloured rainbow which cascades across the silk. The silk is beautiful with a rich, reflective silver shimmer and shine to the surface which changes the look of the design depending on how the light hits the surface of the silk.
I HAVE NOT IRONED THIS PIECE.
Measurement: Approx 11.5ins wide by 22ins long
THIS IS A LOVELY PIECE OF VINTAGE OBI SILK WHICH IS IN GOOD CONDITION BUT QUITE CREASED FROM WEAR. aND AS IT COMES FROM THE FOLDED SECTION OF THE OBI IT HAS A CREASE DOWN THE MIDDLE
You could use it to make a table runner, wall hangings, bags, centerpieces of patchwork, cushions or any other craft or quilting project.
