Obiage & Obijime

Width measurements for most of the Obiage are taken at the narrowest point here, rather than the widest point, so your Obiage may seem bigger than you thought when you receive it.  They are all vintage, so there may be the occasional small spot or smudge, but nothing that interferes with the wear-ability or beauty of the piece.  They are mostly silk; if I have a synthetic piece I will mention it in the description when I am aware of it.  Below the Obiages will be the Obijimes; the cord that holds the obi knot in place.  Following the Obijime will be Haori Himo or Haorihimo, which are the cords or ties for haoris.  When ordering Obiage, Obijime and Haorihimo please use the OA, OJ or HH number in the title line to assure that I send you the correct item!
