Hi, kimono lovers!
Are you always careful to match the patters of obi?
If you get these tips once, you won’t be upset.
There is no trouble with tying new obi.
Let’s see how to match patterns of “rokutu-gara“, which the patterns occupy 60 % of the “fukuro” obi.
The length is 4.4 meters. (I recommend over 4.3 meters.)
It has two “garadomari” or borders.
Are you ready?
First, place the face of your obi to the floor and the tare toward the left.
Take one width of obi.
Take three times of the width of obi, and pinch there with a clip
Do the same thing, and pinch there as the place of the six times with another clip.
Fold the obi into half from the clip of the six times to the te-saki.
So let’s tie the obi by using a temporary string!
The method of tying “nijutaiko” in detail is here.

Put the te-saki on the shoulder temporarily.
Wrap the obi once and pull it at the back. *
Where is the clip pinching at the border of “tare”?
Set the two clips between the left side and the center of the back. (See the black arrows.)
Wrap the obi once more.
How is the front pattern? Does it look good?
The clips in the photo above are on the center of the back.*
The clips in the photo below are on the left side. (See the black circle.)
They are different impressions.
Where is your “te-saki“? Confirm the position.
Place a pad for obi on the line of red (1/3) or the black (1/2). It depends on the patterns and your height.
Make a double-layered otaiko.
Keep the position of the pad and hang the “tare” down.
The difference of the length should be made 5 cm or more.
Setting the first-coming pattern is easy to make the double layer.
The second is a little bit difficult.
“Otaiko” was made.
Are the patterns of “otaiko” and “tare” connected?
(Oops! Wrinkles are on the “otaiko“! Remove them before tying obi!)
Connect the patterns as much as possible. It looks beautiful.
So please look for the best way to match patterns of your obi!
