This contemporary obijime is an unusual construction and interesting color mix. Two-thirds of the length is a dark pine green flat weave, but then the cording splits into two thinner round braids in a dark pink with black bands. Perhaps this was custom-designed to go with a particular obi or kimono - the design and palette are quite unique.

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!
