Obi Belt in Linen Canvas with American Leather Trim
Wanted to love this belt
I hate giving anything EF designs a less than stellar review but this belt just didn't work for me and I honestly don't recommend it.
The fabric is just too stiff. It was uncomfortable around my waist because of the rigidity of the canvas and it wasn't supple enough to wear across my hips, either.
I love Obi belts and have a couple that my husband bought on one of his frequent trips to the Far East; however, both of the ones I own are made of very flexible and forgiving fabric, which works better for my shape.
While I cannot really recommend it based on my experience with trying it on, some might not mind the stiffness of the canvas. It is a lovely design--just not the best fabric for an Obi belt, imho. This is one of the very few items I will be returning, but as they say--nothing ventured, nothing gained!
