Accessorize with linen

Linen fabric has unique texture and is a popular choice among leading fashion designers.

Linen has some very attractive properties such as durability, versatility and sustainability.

We custom make these elegant obi belts from organic Japanese linen.

Obi is a type  sash for traditional Japanese dress and part of kimono outfits.

There are many different types of women’s obi, and the usage of them is regulated by many unwritten rules not unlike those that concern the kimono itself. Certain types of obi are used with certain types of kimono; the obi of married and unmarried women are tied in different ways. Often the obi adjusts the formality and fanciness of the whole kimono outfit: the same kimono can be worn in very different situations depending on what kind of obi is worn with it.

Econica’s obi are a modern version redesigned to fit our busy lifestyle and simplified clothing choices.
