An Obi is a broad sash worn around the waist of a Japanese kimono.
The Japanese word sakiori comes from "saki," which means to tear or rip up, and "ori," which means weave. With Japanese sakiori, torn cloth pieces are rolled into 13 to 16 inch lengths and loomed together in weft (width) rows and using cotton or hemp (rare) as the warp (length) yarn.
