Darari Obi tutorial by yuna19 Darari Obi tutorial by yuna19
this tutorial is for the darari obi that a maiko wears.
hope that you find it useful... and this image is super huge.... dont say that i didnt warn you
if you want to give me tips thats fine, i'm still learning too =]

also, this was done on my sister, and she doesnt fit any of my kimono, hence why I'm tying it over her t-shirt and jeans.... cant expect meto tie the obi on myself, and take pictures can u?

anyways, enjoy! =]

Tnx for this! But we can do this with a fukuro obi or we need a darari obi?

A bit of a late reply, but better late than never right? It's near impossible to get ahold of a darari obi short of making it yourself, but that doesn't mean it's impossible with a fukuro or maru obi. You won't get the same dramatic length on the tails of the obi, but it's very possible. The longer the obi, the better, though.

Hey,
I'm afraid I'm asking a stupid question, but where is the tutorial actually?
I've been searching for such a long time for a useful tutorial, but didn't find any. Now everybody here seems to find this tutorial so useful, so I guess, it must be very good.
But... am I blind? Where is a link? Where are the pictures and descriptions? No matter where I click, I don't find the actual tutorial.
Thanks,
Lucia

oh ; one more thing; is it possible for this knot to " tie in the front move to the back " ?

(whispers) yush: I've used this tutorial a lot for my own kimonos and I tie the knot in the front and move it back. The kimono will move a bit along with it, but redress yourself afterwards and voila: you're one fine looking maiko ^_^; just give it a few random tries, and you'll get better in it. By now I can do it without gazing at this tutorial ^^

@ the lady ~yuna19 thank you soooo much for the tutorial ^_^

thanks a lot for this tutorial! I'm hoping I can do this by myself as I don't have a *helper*.

I can tie the bunko musubi by myself but I sweat blood (okay not really) during the process! gah!

I'm going as Maiko for halloween this year; I love dressing in Kimono. Love it.

It doesn't matter who responds to this,but could you use a Chuya obi(or a good sized Nagoya obi?) to do this also?
I found one that's very close to the length of a Maru obi and looks like it could be tied into a darari obi.

I'm a re-enactor and my persona is a senior maiko. I really appreciate this tutorial and will soon tell you how well it worked. My only question before I start is how long soes the fabric need to be and does it come off of a standard bolt, a shorter bolt or do you have to cut the width at all.

*angelic singing* You are amazing. Thank you. I bought an entire WWII era furisode, but I could never find a tutorial that would explain how to tie a darari or hanhaba. So I had been dressing up as a maiko with a taiko tie. ;_; I felt like a sinner slaughter the geisha world like that.

But thanks to you, I will now be able to dress full out like a maiko. Yayyy!

This is great, but I have a few questions for you. What width is your obi, and would it work for a narrower obi? And my other question is there any way you could make this into a little more printer friendly version?
Reply
:iconyuna19:
yuna19 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2008
my obi is 30 cm wide. Most obis are on average that size as well. Normally, you are supposed to fold the obi into 3/4 when you wear it, but if you want to have the wide maiko effect, just leave it unfolded when you're tying it. I can get around to making it printer frienly, but i'm a pretty busy girl :P it may take a while

I have been searching all over the internet for how to tie this kind of obi, I'm going to be doing a Kabuki performance later on during the school year, so I reallt needed to know this, I know how to tie just a simple one, but not a Darari... I'm getting my Kimono and my obi soon so then I can practice, once again thank you :)

lol, good luck with your performance!
I suggest trying to teach other people how to tie it too, especially if you need to be wearing the obi yourself. its really hard to tie when you're all alone :P believe me i know...

anyways, i'm glad it came of use!!
