Sanada obi are flat, decorative ribbons that can take skilled artisans as long as a month to weave by hand. For more than 400 years, they’ve been used to fasten samurai armor, to wrap sword handles, and as formal belts for kimonos. Here an ivory-and-gold-hued silk and cotton ribbon forms the band of an elegant gold-tone watch.
Band is woven in Kyoto, Japan. 1 1/8" diameter x 16"L adjustable strap.
