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 is a deep, rich brick tone silk with a splash of pastel colors in an abstract floral motif. Lovely pastel colors with some gold leaf that seems to have tarnished over time. but still provides some shine.The center of the design is a soft blue with gold-leaf blossoms floating along. A soft yellow border outlines the element and flowing from that are smaller florals and abstract curls. (And yes, we are sure it is not upside down since the bottom edge is the finished end of the obi.

The design was done with the yuzen technique - see videos below to learn more.

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.
