"Celery" - Vintage Obijime and Obiage

This is a obi jime and obi age combination set.

The obiage is a spring, soft yellow-green with a herringbone jacquard and florals outlined in gold. The obijime is a thick round braid in a light yellow that goes well with the celery color.

Obijime are the finishing touch to the traditional obi sash, tied on top of the obi with a decorative knot at the front. The obijime color and design should complement the ensemble rather than match the color.

An obi age [oh-bee ah-gay] is one of the final touches when wearing a traditional Japanese kimono. It holds the little pillow in place at the back bow and comes around the front, just peeking out above the obi at the waist. They aren't supposed to match the obi per se, but complement it or provide a splash of eye-catching color.
