This is a new, 100% cotton men's tanzen obi for wear with yukata cotton kimono. It's made in Japan and is just over 2 3/4"(7cm) wide and about 94 3/4"(240.67cm) long.
Do you already have a yukata summer kimono but need a quality obi at a reasonable price? This 'enji-iro' red tanzen obi goes very well with various yukata. Enji is a traditional hue that is close to a rouge, or deep red. Tanzen refers to the stripes that characterize this type of obi.
Please note that this different from the simple, shorter cloth sashes that are meant for indoor wear at some inns and similar places. This obi is longer, and so it wraps around your waist more than once. On the other hand, it is not as wide or as long or thick as obi that are known as kaku obi. So please check the photos as well as the measurements of this obi before you purchase, so that you don't end up with something that is different from what you really wanted.
I have two other tanzen obi available separately, one in navy and another with navy and gold, please check those out as well. Many guys find that having more than one obi on hand to chose from when they wear their yukata kimono is an easy way to change the look of an ensemble.
