Ryu Japan: Heko Obi

Speak of the devil! Matching nicely with my post about soft obi a couple of days ago, online dealer Ryu Japan posted some heko obi yesterday for a good price of $17 each. I didn't click through the individual pages for all of them, but the few that I did look to be women's rather than children's or men's based on the length and the bright colors.

While we're on the topic, heko obi are extremely alluring as they're comfy and the easiest obi of all to tie (wrap, wrap, tie a bow, done!), but if you're doing a traditional ensemble they're only suitable for wearing with the most casual forms of kimono: summer yukata up to komon, depending on how nice the heko obi is.
