This vintage obijime features an unusual combination of a silvery white woven background and a long thin band of indigo woven fabric attached down the middle on one side. The blue is pieced on top - not woven into the cording - which we've never seen before. The edges and back are completely white.This would work great with a summer obi or any casual obi. Also great as a simple corded 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!

See the videos below - one show how to tie an obijime when wearing it with an obi and the other shows how an obijime can "Japanique your style" as a belt, necklace or bracelet!
