Well when I say new, I brought it a while back but just yesterday got it out of the packaging and see how it looks.
Lazy me with not tying the hanhaba obi properly, but hey…you get the idea. The obi has a reverse pattern underside with white so I could probably manage a twist or dual coloured bunko at the back.
‘Errrr, Liz – isn’t this red and black again?’ – I hear you cry. Why yes it is and I am a creature of habit.
I do have a hot pink reversible version of this hanhaba obi if I wanted to ring in the changes.
This yukata is going to be part of an up and coming fashion show at Hyperjapan and it might also then be my KDJ outfit for August after it has had a blast with my steam cleaner.
OK, so I ordered 2 nagajuban and a obiage/obijime set for my holidays on Saturday the 26th of March.
