This handsome oriental sash came to me in a box labeled kimono accessories. I am unfamiliar with the fabric, it definitely is not silk. There are no labels or markings in the English language. It is red decorated in symbols of black and gold on white backgrounds. This sash is 43.5 inches long and 5.5 inches wide. The decorated portion is 21.5 inches long, the rest is plain red. There is a 3.5 inch strip of velcro for fastening. There is a backing in white to keep the flat shape upon fastening around the body. The backing material is unfamiliar to me, it has the feel of leather, but is not. If you have no kimono to wear it with, I believe it would be sharp as a cinch around a full, billowing blouse that is longer in length. I hope you can imagine it as a part of your wardrobe. It is too small for my waist. It comes in a custom made protective sleeve.
