- A taiko musuba (square knot), 2 part Nagoya type obi. Known as a tsukuri obi, tsuke obi or easy obi.
- A pre-tied, two part (tsuke) obi. The sash is one piece, the taiko knot is the other. The rear knot strip is simply folded into the taiko shape and held in shape and position using an obiage and obijime. If you want the taiko section permanently stitched into shape, rather than having to fold it each time it is put on, let me know when you purchase it and I can stitch it before sending it
- Obi should not be washed
- Made and bought in Japan
- Most obi, including pre-shaped taiko knot obi, require an obijime and obiage to hold the rear knot in place, which are always bought separately. With a taiko knot style obi, an obi makura (obi bustle pad) is usually worn inside the knot too
- Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only
Obi are one-size-fits-all items
