Add some Japanese flare to your home with these elegant hanging tapestries made from vintage silk obi. An obi is the sash worn around the waist of the kimono. They are decorated with intricate patterns and an array of colors. Obi typically cost more than a kimono, particularly when purchased brand-new. A number of specialist fabrics used particularly to make obi are highly prized for their craftsmanship and reputation of quality, such as nishijin-ori, produced in the Nishijin district of Kyoto, and hakata-ori produced in Fukuoka prefecture.

This tapestry features a color scheme of black, orange, and gold, and features embroidered depictions of cranes, and butterflies. Finished with gold tassels and orange hanging cord.

This is made from a vintage obi, and as such there may be small age related spots or snags present. These are minor and will not take away from the overall beauty and uniqueness of these one-of-a kind pieces of art.
