Just a quick entry for Friday fun! I received a navy and red hakata tsuke a.k.a."easy obi" or "pre-tied" obi a while back and have been meaning to share. I love hakata obi since they are so versatile; I seem to be collecting them since I have accumulated eight so far!
This obi is done up in the traditional o-taiko style and is in almost mint condition- there is one small stain on one of the white himo. I have no idea what to wear it with but it's sure cute! ;)
