There are a variety of different types of women's obi, and the usage of them is regulated by many unwritten rules not unlike those that concern the kimono itself. Certain types of obi are used with certain types of kimono; the obi of married and unmarried women are tied in different ways. Often the obi adjusts the formality and fanciness of the whole kimono outfit: the same kimono can be worn in very different situations depending on what kind of obi is worn with it.

The Fukuro Obi is one of the most formal Obi’s worn by the present generation.  Typical of most quality Fukuro Obi’s this piece is lined in a finer silk to make it lighter and easier to wear. 

This beautiful Obi is of a flat design, making it suitable for many modern designing purposes.  It would be perfect laid as a table centre or on a side board.  The design has been created by shibori technique, showing an indigo colour swirl, overdyed with a beautiful plum.  This piece is in excellent condition and is unused.
