Ukiyo-E and My Sister's Kinran Obi No Tie
This tie is reversible. One side is Ukiyo-E. Classical 17th century Japanese artwork. Ukiyo-e translates 'picture of the floating world.' The other side is made from my sister's kimono obi, called Kinran (金蘭). She wore it in her childhood ceremony. It is sewed with hard red and gold threads. (It is not printed.) All handmade!!!
