This is a sophisticated Fukuro obi
with a desing of vertical stripe, which is woven.
Weeping 'sakura'(cherry blossom), 'kikko ' (tortoise shell) and circles of butterfly and flowers are woven on the design.
Gold foil threads woven on the design are modestly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Slight horizontal stripe smudge can be seen near a crease of circle mark of the figure. It may be a little bothering when tied.
Thin streak can be seen near the smudge and a little disturbing. (Its width is 0.7in(2cm) and the length is 3.9in(10cm).)
However, if you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), it can be hidden.
There are a couple of other flaws.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy this appealing piece!
