This is a graceful Fukuro obi
with classical pattern such as 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'ume'(Japanese plum) and butterfly on 'tanzaku'(strip of paper), which is woven with loop velvet technique.
Gold foil threads woven on the background are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is not folding lines and it seems to be untied one.
There are snags on otaiko but not so prominent.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
