This is a vintage Fukuro obi
with a design of 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'ume'(Japanese plum) on fans, which is woven.
Its retro and cute vintage design is charming.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed.
Textile is rather thick silk and has rather crisp touch.
Its length is rather short. 398cm=156.6in
There is a same flaw of (A) also on maegara( front patterned part), although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
Discoloration, due to its old age can be seen overall. (the 6th flaw photo)
There are several other flaws such as smudges on overall edges, folding lines and stains.
Please check detail photos.
It has aged feeling and sense of use.
However, we hope you enjoy tying this charming piece!
