This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with a design of nandina and butterfly, which is dyed.
Silver foil threads woven on the background are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is a stamp of the dyer on Tare end.
Several dyestuffs can be seen on butterfly of Otaiko, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
It has stains on one side of Maegara( front patterned part).
(If you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), they can be hidden.)
There are a couple of other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy tying this piece!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
