This is a graceful Zentsu Fukuro obi
with two facing birds and 'Housouge'(imaginary Chinese flower) on 'shikishi' (square paper) pattern, which is woven.
The design woven with Fukure-ori(matelasse) technique is three dimensional.
The gold foiled threads woven on the base and the pattern shine elegantly.
Textile is exquisite, soft silk.
It has slight folding lines, but they do not bother for wearing.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Although there are such flaws above, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy its design which adds more elegance to your kimono fashion.
