About This Project
Obi (帯, おび) is a sash for traditional Japanese dress, kimono. There are many types of obi: Fukuro obi (袋帯) is
less formal version of the maru obi and has all but replaced the former as the formal obi of choice. It can be worn in a Taiko Musubi(お太鼓結び) style, and also because of the thickness, it is great to make a Kawari Musubi(変わり結び) style. Nagoya obi (名古屋帯) is the most convenient obi. It is to be worn in the Taiko musubi(お太鼓結び) style. Brides wear a white obi for a Shinto wedding. They typically start by wearing an ensemble known as a shiromuku. This mostly white ensemble is worn during the wedding ceremony and signifies pureness, cleanliness, and virginity.
