Southbank Obi

This is a modern take on the Japanese Obi Sash.

Obi

I made it from charcoal grey wool, pumpkin and pewter dupioni and my Southbank Shadows photograph printed onto silk habotai and fashioned into a belt loop. The padded part is layered with cotton batting.

Obi – detail

It is designed to sit just at the small of the waist and the ties wrap around to tie into a short bow on the opposite side. It can be dressed up or down and works over a few layers of clothing or just a top.
