This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with 'housouge'(large karabana flower) pattern, which is woven.
The vibrant pattern emerges out against the black background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are open, and it does not have a stiff lining inside.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, some snags can be seen on maegara(front patterned part) and so on.
The snags are tiny so not prominent.
A slight folding line remained from 'tesaki'(narrow end) to between star mark and circle mark of the figure.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
*To complete as a wearable obi, additional $50-$60 is needed.
