I don’t come across many horse designs in kimono so it’s great to see this obi!
Antique silk, 31,500 yen from Antique Kimono Yaya.
The gold AND silver make this obi rather formal, though it’s still “just” a Nagoya obi (thus not suitable for furisode use). The appliqued brushwork is classic and energetic, and this rich dark indigo is a really classy color. I wish it wasn’t 31,500 yen.
The sparse sakura petals make this a spring seasonality.
