Project Obijime – Restoring Vintage Obijime Back to their Former Glory!

Over the years I’ve amassed a rather large obijime collection – with a large number of them being antique obijime.
Unfortunately, more often than not with antique obijime – the tassels at the end are an absolute knotted, matted, torn mess when I receive them. Having the tassels like this can make what used to be a lovely obijime look tacky and exceptionally sloppy and unattractive when worn.

So – I decided to start Project Obijime. Due to how many obijime I have – I need to create proper storage for them, but most importantly – I want to take the time to restore all my antique obijime to their former glory and to protect the tassels on all my obijime.

I decided to take step-by-step photographs on how I tackled this task for all those out there who may need to do the same thing. If you have any questions – please don’t hesitate to ask!
