Nishijin-ori (literally "Nishijin fabric") is the typical style of fabric used for obi, the belt tied around the waist when wearing traditional Japanese kimono. Many people wear obi made with spectacular Nishijin-ori for celebrations and other special occasions, both in the past and in the present day. However, people have fewer opportunities to wear them regularly because of changes in their lifestyles. In light of this, there is growing attention for new products that use Nishijin-ori. Let's take a look at glass plates that incorporate the designs of Nishijin-ori while inheriting the skills and esthetics from this fabric with a long history.
