These kaku obi are made here in Kyoto using the Nishijin style of weaving - Nishijin is where we are based so these are sourced from the heart of Japan's traditional kimono culture.

Kaku obi are a stiff thin style of traditional belt worn with kimono. Initially worn by men, it has found use in traditional martial arts for securing swords, aiding breathing and complimenting your chakuso. Most often used in Iaido, but also Kendo and Koryu practice. Approximately 390cm by 9.5cm.

Nishijin Cotton Kaku Obi

Beautiful cotton kaku obi in true Nishijin style

Rich, deep colour (green) kaku obi with perfect length, width and thickness. Quality of the weaving looks and feels excellent. In my books, this is probably as good a cotton kaku obi as they come. Really the only way to improve on it, is to go with silk.


Fast shipping and quality. You know quality when they put their phone number on it.
