Inspired by the bamboo forests near Kyoto that were believed to have been planted to protect the nearby temples from evil spirits. Invoke the feeling of following the winding path through the bamboo as the wind rises and the bamboo stalks sway and shimmer in the breeze.
This amazing vintage textile is upcycled from a vintage Japanese Obi, used to tie Kimono, dating from the Mid-Showa period (over 40 years old) and is in excellent condition.
Bamboo is a symbol associated with strength and here the bamboo stalks are woven in silver thread with the leaves in bright green gilt thread. You will receive a FREE Hunted and Stuffed guide to symbols in Japanese textiles with your order.
