Lots of things for sale this week! I'm clearing out my closets. There are so many beautiful things that I bought and love, but I either don't wear them because I don't wear many things of the formality level required, or I have enough similar things that my outfits can still work beautifully. I can always get more obijime later! I need to work on getting obiage!
Each kazari is one of a kind and made by me. I used new and vintage beads, so every item is unique! No one else will have one identical to this.
Wide obijime aren't very common, I think. They're informal in category, and this one is so bright and stark in contrast, you could go for a lot of different modern looks with this one obijime.
2.2cm wide x 133.5cm long, not including tassels.
silk furisode obijime! Muted metallic threads, cotton candy pink on one
side, saturated blue on the other. Tassels need some careful combing and ironing.
There's a few tiny loose thread ends, but they don't seem to affect wearability.
1cm wide x 152.5cm long, not including tassels.
1cm wide x 154cm long, not including tassel on one side.
No flaws found.
paprika red + green formal maru obijime! Bought new and worn only a few times. It's such a gorgeous colour combo! This one was perfect for houmongi, older iromuji (the kind that actually do have subtle colours and patterns, but pre-WW2 they were still considered iromuji), and maybe 1-3 crest irotomesode. You may also like wearing it with furisode! The tassels are still in great shape, too.
1cm wide x 157cm long, not including tassels.
new furisode obijime in mousy grey-green brown and soft purples. This
one appears to have a loose thread or two from the manufacturing
process. There are some other subtle additions of colour where the purples wrap into the main cords. The tag and tassel protectors are still on it.
1cm wide x 154cm long, not including tassels.
