About Obimaika

Sales 862
On Etsy since 2011

I spent my childhood in southwestern France in contact with nature and all kinds of crafts, sewing, ceramics, drawing, painting. I loved making costumes for my pet (a dachshund who always lent itself to the game!).
A few years later, I began my studies at the "Ecole de Maquillage Artisitique Christian Chauveau" in Paris. My carreer as a professional makeup artist has allowed me entering in the world of fashion, advertising, photography, fashion design and styling.

My passion of making accessories for my artistic creations led me in 2011 to make a belt for my personal use and after obtaining a japanese silk fabric, I made the first prototype of Obi belt modifying later the pattern to make it a product singular in this category (curved and without visible seams).
Encouraged by the success of my Obi belt, I created Obimaika and opened my Etsy shop. Obimaika is a Japanese concept meaning "dancing elegantly with an Obi."

In 2012, I created my Obi bracelet design with the same making criterion (superimposition system) giving a high importance to the principle of comfort and elegance.
During the 2014 season, I added the "Mini Obi belt” to my collection with a straighter cut that can be adjusted to be worn on the hips.

All items are hand-made, with no visible seams and high quality finishes. To Obimaika, this is an indispensable requirement in the making of all articles that gives a stylish look and a spirit of "Haute Couture".
