Japanese Silk Obi Pillow

$428

About

Made by a Chicago artist who collects vintage textiles, this handcrafted silk pillow features broad swatches of vintage Japanese obi. Part of traditional kimono attire, the obi is a decorative sash worn over a kosode robe and knotted at the back. Obi can vary from simple everyday designs to colorful and elaborately embroidered versions that can cost more then an entire ensemble. This pillow is down filled and tastefully backed with linen.
