Obi is the Japanese name for the sash which is tied around the body and used to close the kimono. Worn by both women and men, there are many kinds of obi (each has a specific name) used with both formal and informal kimono. Hakata obi is tightly woven thick silk that results in a single reversible layer. This obi can still be used as a sash. Such superior textile artwork would also add a lovely touch to home or business décor. Numerous books (check online bookstores) show special ways to tie and decorate with Japanese obi.
