This listing is for a display piece made from the wide 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. (Narrow section listed separately.)

This tapestry comes from a summer obi with a linen-like feel (that could actually be linen or a silk-linen blend). The fabric is a soft sage green, lightweight and semi-sheer but the white lining is stiff and gives the piece body and shape.

The design seems to be painted with sumie ink - a floral and leaf pattern with very delicately drawn details. Note the red stamp of the artisan.

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. If you need a display rod, choose your color from the options above.
