Plaid Yellow Bow 2 Part Easy Obi
  • A 2 part easy obi, with pre-shaped rear bow and separate sash section. Very easy to put on.
  • I have included a photo of another obi of the same shape being modelled, that picture is for size and shape reference only, it is not the obi for sale.
  • Hanhaba obi style
  • Obi should not be washed
  • Made in Japan
  • The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have large, white stitching (shitsuke) round the edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment


Condition:
Excellent - a spot or so of foxing but very, very inconspicuous. There is foxing on the cardboard backing card - see photo

Measurements approximately:

Obi are one-size-fits-all items

    • Cleaning: Great care must be taken in cleaning obi. It is not adviseable to wash them. Many may be dry cleaned. Any cleaning is done at the buyer's risk, as is the case with all vintage items.
