This is a graceful Fukuro obi
with a design of 'housouge'(large karabana flower), which is embroidered with Sagara embroidery technique.
It also has a design such as 'shokkou'(octagon and rectangle) and flower 'karakusa'(arabesque).
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The stains on tare end are bothering a little.
It has prominent folding lines from upper otaiko to maegara(front patterned part).
Besides, it has tiny snags on otaiko.
Please check detail photos.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
