The obi FAQ 11 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
I noticed a statement copied from EIL in the obi FAQ that is really incorrect:

"The term 'obi-strip' is derived from the name of the piece of wide fabric - the obi - that a geisha woman wears around her waist over the traditional Kimono dress."

The obi is a the "belt" on a kimono, it is worn by any woman wearing a kimono and is not limited to geisha. Just like a lot of westerners think geisha are all prostitutes, another gross misconception...
