This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with a design of butterfly, 'hagi'(Japanese bush clover) and 'kaede'(maple leaf) on 'yukiwa'(snow crystal), which is woven.
Gold glazing and Raden (design in mother-of-pearl inlay) are added on otaiko(square bow) and 'Maegara' (front patterned part) and fascinatingly shine by the angle of light.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has folding lines and stains on blank part.
Although not shown on the photo, there are wrinkles on 'tesaki'(narrow end).
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its graceful fashion!
