1 Japanese WW2 1000 stitch belt available.  The thousand stitch belt is called a senninbari.  

A senninbari was made of a lighter colored cloth--in this case silk--usually given by Japanese women to soldiers.  Senninbari had as many as 1000 red stitches--and usually each stitch was made by a different Japanese woman.  Senninbari were believed to protect the soldier wearing it from bullets.  

Thousand stitch belts could have either 1000 knots arranged in a grid, or could be formed into Japanese kanji--and most attractively, into the image of a tiger.  

This thousand stitch belt has the stitches formed in the image of a tiger.  Also present on this belt is an Army flag and a Navy flag.  There are also 4 Japanese kanji.  And last, 11 kanji are stamped in purple ink on the outer edge of this belt.  

This Japanese WW2 thousand stitch belt is in perfect condition.
