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 of the obi sold separately.)

This tapestry features a beautifully woven set of white camelia blossoms against a deep purple background. The end is tapered to a point. The same design appears on the back but the piece is not reversible as-is because of the display sleeve 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.
