This is a gorgeous Fukuro obi
with elegant flower and 'Housouge'(imaginary Chinese flower) on shibori(tie-dye) 'kikko' (tortoise shell) pattern, which is embroidered with Soshu embroidery work.
Woven-in silver foiled threads on the background gently shine with elegance.
Textile is exquisite silk and has light touch.
Fashionable red lining is added inside.
It seems like the original owner of this obi enjoyed many fancy bow.
So that there are folding lines and wrinkles through out.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It's still wearable enough in very good condition.
This eye-catching piece will brighten up you on the scene for sure!
