Fukuro obi (袋帯, ‘pouch obi’) is the most formal obi actually used today. It has been made by either folding cloth in two or sewing two pieces of cloth together. Not counting marriage outfits, the fukuro obi has replaced the heavy maru obi as the obi used for ceremonial wear and celebration. A fukuro obi is about 30 centimetres (12 in) wide and 360 centimetres (11.8 ft) to 450 centimetres (14.8 ft) long.
Nagoya obi (名古屋帯) is the most-used obi type today. A Nagoya obi is distinguished by its structure: one end is folded and sewn in half, the other end is of full width. This is to make putting the obi on easier. A Nagoya obi can be partly or fully patterned. It is normally worn only in the taiko musubi style, and many Nagoya obi are designed so that they have patterns only in the part that will be most prominent in the knot. A Nagoya obi is shorter than other obi types, about 315 centimetres (10.33 ft) to 345 centimetres (11.32 ft) long, but of the same width, about 30 centimetres (12 in).
Single Haori Belt
The single haori belt is made from soft, smooth kimono fabric (100% silk) and is a good example of beautiful Japanese dyeing and weaving techniques.
Single Switch Belt
The single switch belt is made traditional obi belt material and kimono fabric. It is a gorgeous accent piece, and the soft silk fabric makes it easy to tie. It is shorter than the double switch belt, resembling in its simplicity and ease of use the single haori belt.
Double Switch Belt
The double switch belt is made traditional obi belt material and kimono fabric. Both its luxuriousness and simplicity of use are fundamental to its design as an obi belt. It is longer than single switch belt, so it can be decorated with various knots.
Obijime (帯締め) is a string about 150 centimetres (4.9 ft) long that is tied around the obi and through the knot, and which doubles as decoration. It can be a woven string, or be constructed as a narrow sewn tube of fabric. There are both flat and round obijimes. They often have tassels at both ends and they are usually made from silk. The round obijimes (the two on the left) is considered more casual than the flat ones (the two on the right).
Obi Evening Bag
The obi evening bag is made from woven obi (帯) belt material, where the obi yarn is first dyed then woven to give the fabric its distinctive and gorgeous pattern. The bag is beautiful and elegant, but also practical.
Obi Clutch Bag
Like the obi evening bag, the obi clutch bag is made from woven obi (帯) belt material, where the obi yarn is first dyed then woven to give the fabric its distinctive and gorgeous pattern. Stunningly elegant, coming vivid and sumptuous colours, the bag is perfect for special occasions.
Kimono Ring Belt
We designed the kimono ring belt as a combination of a European-style belt and traditional Japanese fabric. The silk fabric is wide and soft, so it is easy to make adjustments to the shape.
Yuzen Eye Mask
This unique item is made from kimono fabric and is the perfect present for a friend, loved one or even yourself. The soft, smooth silk will give you a good night’s sleep and happy dreams.
