This elegant shiny fukuro obi
has the 'ayame'(sweet flag), 'ume'(Japanese plum) and 'sakura'(cherry blossom) motifs in interesting shape(it seems to be 'natsume') , which are woven.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft, but rather textured touch.
It's unfinished with both the ends left open and no stiff lining inside.
There are rather prominent folding lines from tesaki to 'maegara'(front patterned part).
It has wrinkles in the blank part, although the photos and figure don't show.
However as a whole, it is in very good condition and it can be tied at formal occasions!
Please check detail photos.
