Love this


This lovely silk brocade fabric is approximately 40 to 50 years old but has never been used for its original purpose of making the wide stiff Maru-Obi belts or sashes which tie around the Kimono making a large bow at the back. The fabric is in fantastic condition with metallic gold-tone threads highlighting the Eagle and mountain.
The book cover is lined with a vintage Japanese Yukata cotton design in cream and blue.
Suitable for a medium to large hardback books measuring (when closed) approximately:
Up to 6.5 inch wide (16.5 cm) wide
Up to 9.75 inch high (25 cm) high
Up to 2 inch thick (5 cm) thick

Spot clean only.
Lay flat to dry away from direct heat.
When dry a light press only with a warm iron.
Please do NOT machine wash or machine dry.

The books in the pictures are for demonstration purposes only.
You are only buying a Book Cover.
Pattern placement and lining colour might vary slightly.


Features a beautiful red golden eagle, soaring over Mount Fuji in Japan. Made from a vintage bolt of unused woven silk brocade, which would have originally been meant for making Obi sashes (the belt which keeps a kimono closed).
