"Blue Silk Accent" Vintage Obijime

This vintage Japanese obijime (obi jime = obi cord) has a beautiful blue silk ikat woven fabric inserted into the section of the cording that would show when it's tied. The rest of the obijime is pink on one side and white on the other.

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.

Other contemporary uses of the obi jime are as a cord belt with jeans or dress or modified into fashion accessories such as hair bands, purse straps, lanyards, glasses holders, jewelry, and more!

See the video below on wearing obi with obijime.
