This vintage Japanese obijime (obi jime = obi cord) has a real retro, 1960s, feel to it. Two thirds of the cording is a pumpkin orange flat weave, but it turns into a completely different patterning for the last third. The accent third is silver, black and white with a woven geometric pattern. Very cool.

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!
