Silk Fukuro Obi with styalised design

Silk Fukuro Obi with styalised design


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 contemporary Obi has a very modern design, and is woven by a master weaver.  The boldness of the design would make the obi to be the feature of the garment being worn by a young woman.

Because of the way Obi's are folded there is a small section at one end of the Obi which does not have the styalised pattern.  Rather it is plain red. 

This beautiful obi would create a splash of colour in many homes....
