This is a graceful Fukuro obi
with reed and egret on stream pattern, which is woven.
It also has a design of 'matsu'(pine tree) and 'kiku'(chrysanthemum).
Gold foil threads woven on the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The stains on otaiko may be hidden when tied but the stains on maegara(front patterned part) are prominent with sedate colored background.
Slight patinas can be seen on blank part.
There are other flaws such as a folding line.
Please check detail photos.
It seems to be difficult to wear at formal occasions.
However, we hope you enjoy its elegant pattern!
