This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with a charming geometric pattern, which is woven.
Colorful foil threads woven on the pattern are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The Tare end is unpicked about 3.1in(8cm) to confirm a stamp of the designer's signature.
Slight discoloration can be seen on the crease of circle mark, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
It is slight and seems not to be so bothering when tied.
There is a small stain on one side of Maegara( front patterned part).
However, you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), it can be hidden.
There are a couple of other flaws such as a slight folding line.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy tying this piece!
Please enjoy its sophisticated fashion!
