||Sakiori obi fragment in various colors and textures
|Possibly originally a long obi, but also possibly
converted at some point to a cover, for bed or kotatsu table, because of the measurements. A great variety of cloth has been used, mostly silks, in a wide palette of colors
which play off each other in a pleasing way.
|The panel is about 12" wide and 88" long.
Two sections are damaged: an 8" blackish section which seems to have
decomposed because of the inherent acidity of the material, and a dark 4" end section
which has large weak places. The rest is relatively strong.
