Posted today is a red silk Obi, with more pictures coming soon. This Obi is constructed of very soft luminous red silk, woven in a way that makes the entire Obi very soft and easy to work with. The background is made of delicately embroidered gold curling vine tendrils, and these are spaced evenly on the entire Obi. The chrysanthemum motif is embroidered in clusters with other star shaped of flowers and heart shaped leaves. The chrysanthemum motif is outlined in wispy gold thread, with directional embroidery on the petals in a pale blue combined with shimmering silver.
