This is a gorgeous Fukuro obi
with elegant 'Karabana'(imaginary flower in China) and classical designs, which are embroidered.
Drawn work(one of the technique of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) is added on the pattern.
Raden (design in mother-of-pearl inlay) is added on the pattern partly, and look fascinating by the angle of light.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) will be changed depending on the way of wrapping.
It has loosen stitches on the edge.
It has some snags.
Some Raden are peeling off.
It has frays on the corners and both edges throughout.
It has rather prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Loosen stitches need to be repaired for tying.
Enjoy wearing the gorgeous design.
