This vintage Japanese obijime (obi jime = obi cord) is a very contemporary style from the 1980s. One end of the cording is split into three different colors and two different braiding styles! The main section is a hot pink rounded braid with gold thread running through it. The main cord splits in to a turquoise, gold, and two larger red braids, all with gold thread accents. This style makes for a more elaborate and modern look when tied - also is great as a modern belt with jeans!

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!
