Heko Obi kimono belts are generally 2-4m long.
They can also become very beautiful scarves to be draped elegantly.
Each is a one off piece made by hand in Kanako Shibori silk.
This traditional 8th century Japanese ligation / dyeing technique gives embossed patterns to the fabric: Each small point corresponds to a tied bond: Each small point corresponds to a very small knot… It is a long and meticulous work for a very "haute couture" piece of work !
The tradition of Kanoko Shibori tends to disappear, a Heko Obi is therefore a rare item.
One off vintage piece, 100% silk. Made in Japan
