This is a fabulous Hon Fukuro obi
with lattice pattern, which is woven by Tatsumura Textile co., ltd, one of the most leading textile companies in Japan.
Gold and silver foil threads included in fabric and the pattern twinkle modestly.
Textile is rather thick exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is an embroidery saying made by Heizo Tatsumura.
It has no folding lines and seems to be untied.
Though not indicated, it has slight discoloration on the white part.
It's still wearable enough in very good condition.
Please enjoy this glamorous design adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
