The Obi, woven with Peacock Feathers -silk, peacock feather was a revival of an ancient 500 year old technique of weaving real peacock feather as weft. Only a certain Samurai general, who lived in between 1530~1578, could wear peacock feathers in ancient Japan. A Craftsman weaves the feathers one by one in the same direction, so It takes about half a year to complete the product. Only one craftsman can weave this textile in Japan, and it is believed only one in the world. This piece took over 6 months to produce with 10 craftsmen to produce including the designer to involve in every step of working process.
