The Maru Obi, often regarded as a textile art piece, is the most formal of all Obi worn with traditional Japanese attire. It is fully embroidered or woven, on both sides, allowing for a front and back that are equally rich and detailed. Historically, it was worn for significant occasions, such as weddings or formal ceremonies. Its complete width and the complexity of its patterns make it a particularly sought-after item by collectors and kimono aficionados. Each Maru Obi tells a story and conveys messages through its patterns and colors, often representing nature, the seasons, or tales from Japanese literature and folklore.
