This is a Fukuro obi
with a design of checkered on large 'yukiwa'(snow crystal), which is woven.
The 'raden'(design in mother-of-pearl inlay) foils, which gleaming changing by the angle of light are very beautiful and mysterious.
There is not folding lines and it seems to be untied one.
There is not prominent flaw.
This beautiful piece is woven by Kondaya-Genbei who is very famous obi weavers.
Enjoy tying the simple design for long time!
