Do you think, that, Japanese clothes are only just beautiful?
Not only beautiful. It really, determines, your life .
I discovered, that, the essence, is the obi-belt.
If you want to change your life, why not try wearing,
Kojima obi-belt as the first step?
Kojima obi-belt is not made of silk, like the traditional ones.
In addition, this can be used not only with kimono, but also with western clothes, and make them fashionable.
These are typical textiles of my hometown, Okayama.
I created Kojima obi-belt, by combining these.
They can be washed- and- ironed, easy to handle.
I am an instructor using Kojima obi-belt, to teach that clothes, changes, your life.
When I was a child, the world was full of wonder.
I kept asking, “Why? Why?”.
But my parents, were too busy at work, to answer me.
So, I was with my grandmother.
My grandmother, always wore Japanese clothes.
As, I admired my grandmother, I dressed up, in Japanese style
for my wedding.
It was when, I had the obi-belt tied.
The obi-belt fixed my waist, and supported me, like a corset.
I wanted to learn more about that meaning, so, I started learning how to dress, in kimono.
At first, I broke the shape by stepping on Kimono, and tore the sleeves.
By wearing the kimono, I realized that my movements were rude ,and not polite.
So, I tried to move carefully, and started to have, self-control.
If you fix your waist with an obi-belt, you can get yourself in a correct- posture.
Then you will face, straight, forward.
That will give you confidence.
You will start to treat people politely, and people will start to treat you politely, too.
We can change our posture, by choosing the clothes, we wear.
That leads to the posture, of living.
I aim to create a world, where people respect each other.
But how is your life actually?
Don’t you have a couch potato life, like this?
If your posture is sloppy, your posture of living, will change, too.
Aren’t you living a life, where you don’t even care, about yourself?
How about tying an obi first?
Just by tying the obi belt, your back is straightened, and your posture adjusted.
By having a good posture, your mind will be set.
More to say, obi-belt, is, beautiful !!
It has decorative elements, that can be enjoyed, in various-shapes.
Kojima obi-belt can be used to create a shape, that other obi belt cannot.
Because, It uses the edge of tatami.
The edge of tatami, is made of a hard material.
You can always keep a good posture, if you use this.
In addition, Kojima obi belt can easily-make, a three-dimensional, and unique obi knot.
You can adjust your posture, according to the obi belt, and even be dressed, beautifully.
By using the Kojima obi-belt, you can live in a correct posture, regardless of gender, age, or nationality.
Please add Kojima obi-belt to the clothes you always wear.
It’s the birth of a new, Earth native costume.
Imagine a world, where we can live with smiles, respect ourselves, and respect others.
She was very shy.
But when she started using Kojima obi belt, she got a straight
face-up posture, and becameso positive, to be able to appear, in a kimono show.
Mrs. N was worried about her daughter.
I gave her daughter a Kojima obi belt, and she started playing happily.
The child became cheerful, and the mother was relieved.
In Japan, there’s a word, correct your posture.
It not just means, straightening your back, but also preparing your mind.
Why not use Kojima obi-belt, to change your life, with me?
Kojima obi-belt, is easier to maintain–and-handle, than other Obis.
