A modern, two-piece "quick obi", called a "tsukure obi" in Japanese, was created in Japan to make kimono-dressing faster and easier. It consists of a narrow belt portion and a wider, pre-tied taiko-style bow that fits onto the obi belt.

This obi features a brightly colored abstract collage in bright pinks and gold on a brilliant orange. It's lightweight, great for summer! NOTE: This quick obi does NOT have the clip that would hook it onto the belt, so it would need to be held in place by an obiage or obijime.

To wear this obi properly, one might still need other accessories (i.e., the pillow (obi makura), an obiage (scarflike accessory) and the (optional) obi-ita (stiff board)). Unfortunately we do not sell these items but they can be readily found on the internet.
