"Slightly Narrow" Men's Heko Obi

This is a heko obi – a scarf-like, silk, wide sash meant to be worn with a man’s casual kimono. These obi typically feature tiny kanoko shibori puckers at both ends, but sometimes all throughout, like this one! This particular heko is only 9' long whereas they are normally 13', and slightly more narrow at 16" rather than 21".

This soft silk has puckered kanoko shibori against black with separated rows at each end. See video below on the shibori technique.

Heko obi are also fashionable and warm as scarves or draped over a rod for an interior design piece.

See the video below on how to put on a heko obi.
