A silk obi with popular design.
The original cloth which was one of the favorites of Rikyu, a great tea master, is a brocade with plum blossom motifs in yellowish brown which softly melt into a light blue background. This design is a superb one to represent plumblossoms with five dots in yellowish brown and a lineal construction to combine these dots. In view of its wide use today, we introduced a slight change to the texture of the original fabric. For a color scheme we learnt the way of making and sense of the original, and tried to represent plum-blossoms in various background colors and by the shades which harmonize with these colors.
