This is a Fukuro obi
with classical folding fans and hand drums pattern, which is woven.
Flower card, long tail bird and Matsu (pine tree) are colorfully designed on each fan.
Its elaborate pattern with lots of gold threads are perfect for a formal usage.
Textile is soft silk.
Both ends are closed, but there is no lining inside.
There are snags and slight patinas on one side of Maegara.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), clean side of Maegara will show.
It must have used to tie a unique knot style as there are folding lines throughout the item. (though it does not show so on the drawing image)
There is a stain on the wrong side.
Please see photos for details.
It is rather well worn, but overall it is in very good condition and can still be worn.
*It has a bit of old smell.
