Obi Tie Belts
Obi(帯, おび,, literally "sash")
is a sash for traditional Japanese dress, keikogi worn for Japanese martial arts, and part of kimono outfits
In its early days, an obi was a cord or a ribbon-like sash, Men's and women's obis were similar. At the beginning of the 17th century, both women and men wore a ribbon obi. By the 1680s the width of women's obi had already doubled from its original size. and at the turn of the 19th century were as wide as 30 centimetres (12 in).
Originally, all obis were tied in the front. Later, fashion began to affect the position of the knot, and obis could be tied to the side or to the back. As obis grew wider the knots grew bigger, and it became cumbersome to tie the obi in the front. In the end of the 17th century obis were mostly tied in the back. However, the custom did not become firmly established before the beginning of the 20th century.
Obi belts are worn around the waist, as oppose to the hips.
This type of belt is made to accentuate the waist and bring out natural curves.
Therefore, obi belts work best with clothing such as tunics, dresses, and long cardigans.
They also look great with high waist pants or jeans, creating a casual yet sophisticated look.
