A belt for kimono. Maru-Obi is ranked the highest in all the formal Obi. It originally has twice the width compared with that of others, and then doubles to be completed for putting on. So this is quite a gorgeous obi which has single pattern spread throughout both the front and the reverse side. Around the 40's or 50's, Maru-Obi was developed into Fukuro-Obi making itself easier to put on. So Fukuro- Obi still has ceremonial or formal aspects, but comes to be put on rather casual occasions, too, carrying the pattern on the front side only. Nagoya-Obi is used in the wide range of occasions from the casual to the formal, which was invented in the Taisho Period. You can distinguish Nagoya-Obi from others because of the difference of their shapes. Nagoya-Obi has a narrow part and a wider part. "Hanhaba" means "half the width". Hanhaba-Obi is usually put on with casual kimono so that you can do little things. The main feature is "easy to put on, easy to take off". The reversible ones are often seen with gorgeous embroidery.
