Decorative Variations

Below are examples that expand on the basic form of the five flowers tie.  Some modify the basic form and/or combine the five flowers with traditional ties such as the takate kote, the karada harness, or more modern ideas such as those presented by two knotty boys.  Combining the five flowers with these elements allows for more visual detail to be added to the front of the body.  Details on how to do these ties is not given here.  These images are presented with the hope of giving the viewer some creative ideas on how to expand on the five flowers tie.
