The obi (帯, お び) is a typical Japanese sash or belt worn mainly with kimono and keikogi by both men and women.

This belt was born in the Kamakura period (1185-1333) thanks to the abandonment by the woman of the hakama (wide trousers worn under the kimono) and therefore to the lengthening of the kosode (kimono with short sleeves) which remaining open in the front needed of a belt that held it steady. The obi evolved during the Edo period, as the new artistic trend of clothing imposed many long and wide sleeves on some kimono models that changed the proportions of the dress; in this way, the Obi grew more and more until it prevented the movements of women who slipped it into the back of the dress, where it became standardized in the 20th century.


The Shibusa tuxedo bands are made with real vintage Japanese decorative panels used and made in the 50s, 60s and 70s, for this reason they could present imperfections and signs of aging. These imperfections are not to be considered a defect but are synonymous with uniqueness and authenticity.
