This sakiori obi could be made for children's use. The length is relatively short and the both ends are folded into triangle shape and the two ties are attached to the ends for easy use. One of the ties is however worn off due to the age and heavy use. Despite of the age, the body of the obi is in very good condition and it has a very gentle touch. Traditionally sakiori obis were made by remote country people who could not access raw materials to produce sturdy and practical obis for themselves. Recycling old fabrics were economically also suitable to them. Naturally weaving patterns are always irregular, depending on how much of each materials was available. Dimensions: Size Width: Approximately 6" Size Length: Approximately 56" (not including the ties) Circa Early to Mid 1900s
