This is a graceful Fukuro obi
with a design of charming flower on 'tatewaku'(waving line), which is embroidered.
The foiled background is gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Lining is not added inside.
The 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
The folding line below the otaiko(square bow) is prominently discolored, but it will be hidden if tied neatly.
The otaiko(square bow) and the edges are frayed.
The folding line near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part)is prominently discolored and will appear when tied.
It has some other flaws such as noticeable folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
However, if these discoloration near 'Maegara' (front patterned part) do not bother you, it could be worn.
Please enjoy its refined fashion!
