There's an old adage in Japan about warriors in the old days wearing their best to battle. They dressed well assuming that they might die and they didn't want to be too shabby as it would embarrass their families for many generations. Today we are more conservative in our training uniforms but we're still allowed a greater level of personalization for our sageo and obi. These fancy obi are reversible reflecting two different patterns. Made of 100% cotton fiber (silk can be too slippery for iai) these durable obi are 380cm long and can tie flat.
