"Obi" Tea Cozy

Obi tea cozy  -photo by T-
Do you use a tea cozy when you make tea? These are cozy made from obi, a broad sash worn with a woman's kimono. Don't they look gorgeous? As you may guess easily, obi itself is usually very expensive, but these are made from well-worn obi, which means they are not good enough as a kimono sash anymore. Now they are reborn as a tea cozy and keep tea warm nicely for us.




Assorted Wakocha -trial set -




Obi tea cozy creates Japan-ish asmosphere. It will be good to have Japanese teatime with obi cozy and wakocha! When you feel like having Japanesque teatime with those cozy, let me know!
