Orange and Metallic Gold Vintage Obi Silk - 4.9 yard piece
Bright orange, fairly stiff silk with woven flowers plus 'shibori' motif with glimmering gold woven in the background and leaves. Also flowers in cream, white, orange, metallic silver. Design appears in 2 areas. Designed for a formal obi, this silk is heavy, thick (for silk), neon-bright and dynamic. It's in nearly perfect condition from a never-used, carefully stored bolt. There are a few areas with minor age spots on the reverse side and the front looks new. Breath taking! Probably from the 1950's.
First 40", solid orange. Then 24" of bright orange plus gold threads, leading up to 10" with flowers/faux shibori, then 9" with bright orange plus gold threads. Then 16" solid orange. Then 7" with flower pattern/gold and orange background. Then 73" solid chartreuse.
13.5" wide and 179" long, so 4.9 yards in length. $81 for the bolt with free U.S. shipping.
