This listing is for a hanhaba obi (aka "han obi"), which means "half obi" because it is half the width of a formal obi - ranging 5-6 inches. Han obi are easy to tie and are worn with casual kimono for men or women, or summer cotton yukata.

This han obi features an amazing kaneko (fawn spot) shibori dot pattern in blue on a darker blue that is almost black. That means it was dip-dyed in indigo many, many times.

There is a lightening pattern woven into the jacquard silk that catches the light but is mostly unseen. 

See below for videos on wearing this style of obi and the difference between han obi and other styles. These obi also make easy table runners or accent pieces draped over a mantle or bookshelf.
