Obidome

Brooches For Obijime

Obidome are an often overlooked and yet treated aspect of wearing kimono. Though many people would think that the Japanese kimono s the most expensive part of a coordination, many obidome are far more valuable. The obidome worn by Maiko and Geisha can exceed $100,000 in value and are made with real gold, and precious gemstones. When selecting an obidome the most important thing to consider is personal taste and self expression. Obidome can be a playful to formal accent for any kimono.
