Soft-Brown Gold Fleck Wool Hanhaba Obi

  • Made in and bought from Japan
  • Hanhaba obis are casual obis, usually worn with yukata but one like this would more likely be worn with a casual non-yukata kimono.  They are easier to put on and less bulky than other obis and do not require an obi makura (obi bustle pad) inside the knot. Some easy wear ones can also be found in the Two Part Obi section of this site, pre tied as two part cho cho (bow knot) obis
  • 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. Just now and then an item may smell of mothballs but very, very few, most do not

    • 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.
