This is a glorious Fukuro obi
with exotic 'karabana'(imaginary Chinese flower) and phoenix
pattern, which is woven with pure gold coated threads.
Textile is silk, and it's soft.
As the photos and the sheet show, it has some flaws.
The left corner of the tare end is rather orangish with patinas.
There is a somewhat prominent folding line.
On the blank part and the reverse side, tiny greenish dots can be seen here and there.
However, as a whole, it's in very good condition.
*Approx background color - ivory
