Black Modern Kikko Nagoya Obi - Traditional Japanese Kimono Belt Sash - Tortoise Shell Pattern


This dark, dark brown obi is a Nagoya obi, which means that about half of the piece is folded in half, instead of being one flat piece, like fukuro (bag) obi.

This obi has a modern style, as it mixes multiple traditional styles together. You can see the traditional tortoise shell ("kikko") pattern, but there are many different kinds of flowers placed inside them. Also, each hexagon is overlaying another hexagon.

Width: ~30cm
Length: ~350cm


Fabric Quality:
C - Signs of use and stains may be seen. No large stains, but it is clear to see that this has been used a lot. There are some bits of damage, such as the wearing away on the back side, shown in one of the photos. 

Cleaning: Dry Clean Only!
