No matter how much I stare at this obi, I can't figure out what this motif is supposed to be :D They made me think of a bag or some sort of fruit or vegetable. (And from the small picture I thought for a moment that they were guinea pigs :D) Any ideas?

my first thought was eggplant, but the shape is a little bit different than the typical shape of Japanese eggplant...

typical shapes i see in the grocery store are the oblong versions 長なす, but this obi looks more like 米なす (American eggplant)...

might be something else as well...

It definitely could be it, a couple of those eggplants even have similar leaves sticking out like in the obi. Thanks!
