This is a summer Fukuro obi
with different kinds of birds such as parakeet, peacock and owl on checkerboard pattern, which is woven.
The woven silver foiled threads elegantly shine.
Textile is exquisite transparent and soft silk.
The narrow belt part was folded unevenly to make the part widen on belly. When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), a folding line will be seen.
Please wear it by start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right (Rotate obi clockwise).
The stain on 'maegara' (front patterned part) could be not that noticeable when you tie it.
