Pan Asians – Obi & Kimono Fabric

Description:  Contemporary silk from Fukuro Obi is described as a tortoise shell pattern outlined in navy blue with the “shells” shimmering in orange, teal, green and subdued gold tones; two inner compartments and the extra pocket are lined in navy blue satin.  The button is dichroic glass; corresponding navy blue shoulder cord.  NOTE:  Once again, the camera has added a distortion of lines and swirls which are not in the actual fabric; in addition, the button is unbelievably luminous but the camera cannot seem to capture its depth.  This is a gorgeous little bag!
