This is a Fukuro obi
with abstracted phoenix
and karabana 'imaginary flower in china' pattern, which is carefully embroidered with soft and fluffy yarns.
Textile is silk, and it has soft touch.
Patinas on Otaiko may be noticed when tied.
Folding creases near Maegara are discolored along, described as smudges, however, they are not disturbing when worn.
Stains on Tare end will blend in with the background color and barely noticeable.
It has some other flaws, such as slight folding lines, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.
