- Obi: Hey feel my shirt.
- Shirayuki: <b>*Feels Obi’s shirt*</b>
- Obi: Y'know what that is?
- Shirayuki: Cotton?
- Obi: No it’s boyfriend material.
- Shirayuki: No, I’m pretty sure it’s cotton.
I'm curious as to your opinion on this. I recently made an obi out of cotton fabric, simply because I loved the print on it and it complimented the look I wanted for my kimono (you can see it in my kimono tag if you wish!). I know obi are generally made out of a stiff silk, but is it acceptable or even seen elsewhere to have obi that aren't silk/silk like polyester?
