This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with a design of 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) and 'housouge'(large karabana flower), which is embroidered and dyed.
Drawn work and gold glazing can be seen on the design.
'Raden'(design in mother-of-pearl inlay) foils are used on Otaiko and Maegara( front patterned part). They are fantastically shining.
Textile is light silk and has soft touch.
It has a couple of flaws such as peeling spots on folding line.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
