“Obi Couture” is a very unique and original idea made by Yorozu International that they create modern bags, table runners, and dresses using authentic Japanese vintage Obi (Kimono’s belt). Nowadays, kimonos and obis are not worn by Japanese daily anymore as they are too hard to wear and too expensive to wear everyday. Those beautiful vintage kimonos and obis are just kept in the closet at the most of the houses. Yorozu’s this innovative idea is remaking obis into daily-use items so that they can bring or wear these beautiful traditional obis with its traditional power everyday. You may make a bag first, then dress or other items. It is all up to your idea.
