What is a han obi?  "Han" means "half" in this case - these obi are half the typical obi width and are meant for more casual wear.  Japanese obi are decorative only (under-layer ties keep the kimono closed) and are as stunning around the waist as they are as interior décor. Japanese obi come in many different styles – click here to learn more.
