This is a luxurious Fukuro obi
with 'housouge'(large karabana flower) pattern, which is embroidered.
Gold and silver foil threads woven on the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Smudges can be seen on tare end, 'tesaki'(narrow end) and throughout both edges.
There are stains on otaiko and will appear when tied.
It has lots of snags on tesaki.(A)
Slight discoloration can be seen on blank part along folding line.
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
It seems to depends on persons whether it can be worn at formal occasions.
However, we hope you enjoy its graceful pattern!
