This is a golden Fukuro obi
with glorious 'shikishi' (square papers), 'shokkou-mon' (octagon and rectangle pattern) and wave pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads included in fabric and the pattern twinkle gently.
Sparkling foil threads used in the pattern makes this obi suitable for a formal usage.
Textile is silk, and it has soft touch.
Corners of Tare end are frayed.
It must have used to tie a fancy bow as there are folding lines throughout the item.
Please see photos for details.
There are no prominent flaws and it is in very good condition overall.
We would like you to enjoy this classical design.
