- A taiko musuba (square knot), 2 part Nagoya type obi. Known as a tsukuri obi, tsuke obi or easy obi. Nagoya obi style.
- A lovely, rich royal purple, with gold and silver kiri (paulownia). Paulownia, in Japanese mythology, is said to have the only branches a phoenix will land on
- Obi should not be washed
- Made and bought in Japan
- Synthetic fabric
- Most obi, including two-part, pre-shaped taiko knot obi, require an obijime and obiage to hold the rear knot in place, both of which are always bought separately. With a taiko knot style obi, an obi makura (obi bustle pad) is worn inside the knot too, to pad it out at the top, though a few two-part taiko obis have a makura already inside the knot, however, most don't. One can buy actual obiage, obijime and makura or one can improvise with these items
- 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
