The traditional Japanese broad sash used to tie Kimono at the waist, Obi have a standard length of 380 cm. We hold a range of casual and formal Obi in several styles. As the centrepiece of the full Kimono, formal Obi are particularly beautiful pieces in silk and brocade, often elaborately embroidered with striking motifs. Obi are stunning display items and because of their length, make exquisite table runners. Ziguzagu produce custom order cushions using obi brocade fabric.
