As many of you may have noticed, we are working hard to restock many parts of our online kimono store. In addition to the kimono and obi, there are many additional parts that help ensure that a Japanese kimono is worn with style. This week we are adding a great selection of a popular kitsuke accessory, obiage. Obiage are used to wrap a makura, a makura is a padded form used to give various types of obi structure and shape when worn. Obiage can come in a wide range of styles, colours, materials and designs and can instantly change the look of any kimono ensemble it is worn with. When not used to dress traditional kimonos, obiage are also popular as dressy scarves.
You can view our latest selection of ready-to-wear obiage at our online Japanese kimono store.
