Women's Short Obi Ita Obi Sash Plate

Absolutely Adorable Yet Practical

"I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the delicate floral pattern is stitches with a beautiful shine. The light dances on their thread with a subtle silver warmth. I would label the base color more of a very light tint of red-violet, but that may be nit-picking. One wouldn't really see the product beneath the obi regardless, so it's hardly a concern to note. While durable with a comfortable balance of resistance and give, the foam backing makes the product very comfortable to wear. I find it is a very good length for my torso as well. And, again, Shimazakura provided the absolute best in customer service with hand-written notes and kind, polite, gesture. It always brings me back. Always recommend."

Sincerely,
Jessica A. Williams

Excellent jinbei and fantastic customer service

The customer service was outstanding. They did not have my size but kept me up to date on when more stock was coming in. The jinbei I ordered fit very well and is great quality. Thank you for the pleasant shopping experience. Will buy from again in the near future!

Durable and The Most Thoughtful Shipment

The packaging was only slightly different, which was accurately disclosed. The dark marks in the photograph are simply a result of the light and shadow of the clear plastic against the white product. It is stark white, thick, and durable with an even grain. Just be mindful of hemming to prevent fraying on the shorter ends, and to open the packaging carefully, as the label is stitched through the ends of the fabric, to prevent unnecessary tearing. If one possesses the skills, I'd suspect it would be a suitable material to embroider a preferred pattern onto. What more, I can never get over how incredibly wonderful customer service is with Shimazakura. My items were shipped with thoughtful hand-written notes on selected stationary, and even a surprise free gift for my birthday with my preferred pattern and colors. I'm always touched at the thoughtfulness of each encounter I am pleasured to have with this company. It feels so personal.

Absolutely Love This Item

I've received this fan as a free bonus to two different multi-item purchase orders and have been so wonderfully delighted with it both times. I can tell that Shimazakura really puts thought into their packaging and choice in stationary and product for their customers. I make no secret of my love of pink and cherry blossoms from my orders to my contact email. I am so grateful this beauty was sent to me twice because I used my first one so much it broke! haha I am so happy to have another. It's truly the color of spring-time dango and makes me peckish in the most girly, giddy way. Do not be fooled by the photograph! The pink is certainly a delicate blush pink and the green is a slightly neutralized green of soft new spring leaves. The material lets light illuminate through it, halo'ing the beautiful pattern and colors. Great for any cherry-blossom lover, or for spring festivities!

Very nice

I just received this recently and I have to say, it's a lovely addition to have for a yukata or kimono. The price is good, the fabric is light and easy to work with.

Standard Juban

This juban is exactly as pictured. It is very thin and perfect for wearing under yukata for the summer. I bought a Medium and the size fits good. I am 61cm tall and average build. I have not tried to wash it so I do not know how well it washes, but since it is cotton and polyester mix, it should wash well just like the description states. This is definitely a great item to own when wearing yukata and kimono.
