"Fringed Pink" - Vintage Obijime Shigoki Set

This is a obi jime and shigoki obiage combination set.

The shigoki is a very long, single layer piece of silk that can be used on its own as a casual obi or layered under an obi as an obiage. It's a wide, lovely pink with cranes and fringe on the ends. The obijime is a thick round braid in shades of pink.

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.

See the videos below on wearing obi with obiage and obijime.
