obikin
obikin
our price:$32.00

"Obikin" is a portmanteau used by some Star Wars fans to refer to the complex relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker (later Darth Vader) in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. These two characters are a central part of Star Wars, and have a complex and fraught relationship, with Obi-Wan trying to guide and mentor Anakin, and Anakin chafing against his mentor's authority and seeking greater power.

The colors of lightsabers in the Star Wars universe are often used to represent the affiliation of their wielder. These colors have become iconic symbols of the two sides of the Force, with blue and green representing the light side and red representing the dark side. The contrasting lightsaber colors highlight the rift between Obi-Wan and Anakin, and their differing allegiances ultimately lead to their climactic confrontation in the third prequel film, Revenge of the Sith.

This silk is adorned with tiny textured microdots that measure 0.5mm, which are pleasing to the eye without being distracting.
