Obi features
This time, we produced Nagoya Obi, which was redesigned from the design archive of Kawashima Textile Selcon with the aim of
“reproducing antiques”.
We have made it a color pattern that can be coordinated with various kimonos regardless of the season. Normally, a nagoya obi is worn for everyday wear, but this obi is made of high-quality, lustrous silk, so depending on the kimono you wear it with, you can wear it for a small party.
□About the design
Shobi Karakamon / Shobi Kara Hanamon
“Karahana Karakusa” and “Kumihimo”, which has meanings such as “tying ties”, “tying things to things”, and “tying people to people”, are intricately entwined. Based on the fuki-mon, a kimono fabric sample fabric from the Meiji period in which karakusa (*) arabesque is arranged in a sarasa pattern, we have added the modernity seen in Western decorative fabric. A pattern is also placed on the obi (fabric), and a delicate upper pattern is woven into the woven pattern that shows a complex expression.
It is an easy-to-use Nagoya obi that can be matched with various kimonos regardless of the season or age.
* Karaka does not refer to a specific flower, but refers to a flower-shaped pattern introduced from China. The motif of the sample fabric “Fukimon” is a Chinese flower created from peonies.

Saika Lattice Pattern / Saika Koushimon
It is a stylish goya obi with flower circles and phoenix lozenges arranged on the okina lattice with thin lattices between thick lattices.
Inspired by the “Okina Lattice Flying Dragon” obi fabric sample fabric from the Meiji period, the Okina Lattice, which tends to be casual, has been made into a slightly pretentious outing specification. The softly woven upper pattern stands out on the Okina lattice, and is produced to show an expression like Karaori.
It is said that the thick lines of Okina lattice represent the old man, and the thin lines represent grandchildren. Since the old man has many grandchildren, it is said to be a congratulatory pattern that represents the prosperity of his descendants. It is a belt that you can use.
