Description
 
This listing is for a set of two items: (1) an obiage (the scarf-like tie that peeks out at the top of a formally-tied obi) and (2) a complimenting obijime (the long, thin cording that goes around the center of the obi as the final, finishing touch).

No obi? Wearing the obiage as a scarf and obijime as a complimenting belt can add a Japanique accent to your look!

The obiage in this set is a Japanese red (with an orange tint) with thousands of tiny shibori dots filling the background row-upon-row. But at each end the pattern shifts to create three different motifs: pine, bamboo and plum blossom. Together, they are called the "Three Friends of Winter" since the pine and bamboo stay strong in colder months and the plum blossoms are the first to bloom as the weather warms..
60" x 12"

The obijime in this set is a plain flat weave in white with silver in the weave and a changing pattern near each end.
60" x .5"

Excellent condition on both.
