12" x 12" Vintage Obi Pillow
The obi is a long broad sash worn wrapped around the waist of a kimono. There are many different types, the most formal and traditional being the Maru obi. Most popular during the Meiji (1868-1912) and Taisho (1912-1926) periods, their bulk and weight make them difficult to tie by oneself, and they are currently worn only by geishas and brides.
