The phoenix design on obi is very rare and is an auspicious symbol. In Japan, Ho-o, the mythical Phoenix was adopted as a symbol of the imperial household, particularly the empress. This mythical bird represents fire, the sun, justice, obedience, fidelity, and the southern star constellations. Mukai-ho-o and the Imperial House chrysanthemum flowers are auspicious motifs of Japanese history.

At one time, even the most magnificent obi in Japan had only one purpose: to tie a kimono. Today, however, people everywhere are discovering the almost unlimited decorative potential of the obi. With your own special obi, you can add the flair of your personality to just about anything in the home. They are elegant as table runners and wall hangings.

Condition: excellent vintage. Silk and wool woven in the Nishijin style. All handmade/handwoven. Made in Japan. Obi has not been cleaned or repaired. Obi's provenance is Osaka, Japan.

Dimensions: 140 inches (11.6 ft) Long x 12.5 inches Wide (355 cm/3.55 meters x 31.75 cm).

Colors: burgundy, red, golden, whites, blues, greens.
