Fukuro-Obi is a formal Obi.
It's worn by women with a formal kimono.
But if it has casual design, it's worn with a casual kimono.
A casual Fukuro-Obi is called "Share Fukuro-Obi".
So, Fukuro-Obi can be worn with all kind of kimono except Yukata,
it depend on their design.
It's around 30cm in width, and 400-420cm in length.
But recent years, with Japanese women's height is becoming higher,
length of Fukuro-Obi is becoming longer.
It's around 450cm length now.
Fukuro-Obi was born as a substitute of Maru-Obi, at the latter part of 19 century.
At that time, "the clothes improvement movement" was arising all over Japan.
Many people were thinking about way to adapt Maru-Obi to more easily and lightly.
