This is a zentsu 'fully patterned' vintage Fukuro obi
with exotic various flowers on carts pattern, which is woven.
Foil threads included in fabric and the pattern twinkles gently.
Textile is silk, and it has soft touch.
Kaikiri lines are on both sides, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
It may be remade from a Maru obi
as both edges have seams.
It has patinas and discoloration throughout due to its old age.
Kaikiri line near Tesaki end is coming apart for about 5cm(1.95in).
Edges and ends are frayed and fabric seems weakened.
It has some other flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.
Because of the flaws mentioned, it is no longer suitable for wearing.
It must be an amazing handicraft material!
