Chirimen Belt (Obi)—4 Variations
Traditional Japanese kimono obi (belt or sash) are works of incredible beauty and grace. We collaborated with Kyoto-based artisans to create a version that could be used with everyday outfits. The result was a practical reinterpretation of these exquisite and intricate Japanese accessories.
In Japanese, "Yui" has a meaning of bundling, tieing, bonding, and binding things together. It also can mean people coming together as a community. Thus, this belt has a positive aura that draws the right people to you.
