This is a vintage tsume-tsuzure hon-fukuro obi with a design of cloud and 'onagadori'(long tail bird), which is woven.
Its colorful color usage is added gorgeousness.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed. It has special kind of comfortable touch of rather thick Tsume tsuzure
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied,
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
It has rather prominent patinas and stains on otaiko part.
Patinas can be seen also on tare and maegara( front patterned part), although the flaw is not indicated on the figure.
There are several other flaws such as tears on hem of maegara and folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
It can't be tied, but please enjoy its attractive gorgeous design!
