This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with pair animals pattern, which is woven with 'karaori' (woven thickly in chinese style) technique on the foiled background.
Its graceful design with lots of foil threads is suitable to tie at formal occasions.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
Discoloration on the un-patterned part is rather prominent but it will be hidden when tied.(refer to the 5th flaw photo)
The snag on the Otaiko(square bow) is small so not noticeable so much.
It has some other flaws such as a weaving flaw and patinas (refer to the 4th flaw photo) on the Otaiko(square bow).
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
