This is a gorgeous Fukuro obi
with young pine on diamond lattice pattern, which is woven with loop velvet technique.
The pattern woven with loop velvet technique emerges out.
Its graceful design with lots of gold foil threads is suitable to tie at formal occasions.
Textile is exquisite silk and has relatively crisp touch.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has foil peeling spots on the gold parts.
It also has foil peeling spots along the creases on 'Maegara' (front patterned part), and they will be a little bothering when tied.(indicated as smudges A)
It has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws, it is in very good condition overall.
Please enjoy this gorgeous design perfect for celebratory occasions!
