'Hanabishi' Obi

  • This wide vintage Obi sash for Kimono features gold, red, black and white coloured silk brocade in a repetitive hexagonal 'turtoise' pattern with wishes of long life, luck and happiness. Hanabishi is the diamond flower shape.  The underside is plain black silk.

    This type of Obi would traditionally have been worn at ceremonies and celebrations by noble folk and make an excellent special occasion gift - as a hanging art-piece,  decorative runner for a dining table, sideboard or foot of your bed. Wishing them the very best of luck, happiness and long life.

    If you are really far more clever and crafty than we will ever be  - shorten the obi to turn into a wall hanging, or place mats and table runner or even cushion covers or mix with other obi to re-cover a fabric bed head - perhaps even sew into several clutch or shoulder bags - keep one for yourself and gift or sell the rest! 

    In perfect condition on both the front, embroidered side and the black silk backing.

    Note - Please Read before purchase:

    As we take every measure to ensure you are advised of the correct sizing and condition prior to purchase - we ask you to please be aware that we don't refund for Obi chosen in error. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries before purchase.

    All vintage and antique obi were hand made.
