This listing is for a display piece made from the narrow belt portion of a vintage Japanese nagoya-style obi. Nagoya obi are a challenge to display (because a third of it is 13"-14" wide and 2/3rds of it is folded over to half that width to make wrapping the belt portion easier). We separate the wide from the narrow portion and create two display pieces - one wide, one narrow. (Wide section listed separately.)

This tapestry is stiff with metallic-wrapped silk threads, which helps it keep its shape when on display. The pattern is a swirling mix of silver and gold arching lines against a very light pink background. It's mod - contemporary - and can add a unique, feminine touch to your home or office decor.

Similar patterning on the back but the piece is not reversible because of the display sleeve sewn at the top.

We keep the conversion simple - basically cutting the obi, folding one end over to create a sleeve for a display rod, and stitching that in place. A simple chopstick was used in the photos (not included), because the tapestry is short and lightweight.
