Obijime can be worn traditionally or as a contemporary fashion accessory.

This obijime is a formal style - stiffly woven with gold threads and an angled pattern on one side. The other side is softer - a flat weave in a bright fuchsia. The stiffness can be uncurled with a bit of ironing if need be.

Obijime are the finishing touch to the traditional obi sash, tied on top of the obi with a decorative knot at the front. The obijime color and design should complement the ensemble rather than match the color. See the video below for examples of how to tie the obijime with an obi.

Other contemporary uses of the obijime are as a cord belt with jeans or dress or modified into fashion accessories such as hair bands, purse straps, lanyards, glasses holders, jewelry, and more! See the video below on wearing an obijime as a casual belt, necklace, or bracelet.
