This is a fashionable Fukuro obi
with a design of 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) on 'tanzaku'(strip of paper), which is embroidered.
Its embroidered design has three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Drawn work(one of the technique of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) is added on the design.
Gold foil threads woven on the background are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk with dyed 'kikko'(tortoise shell) pattern, and has soft touch.
It is sewn by Yamato, one of the famous Japanese kimono shop.
It has a folding line but not bothering for wearing.
Please check detail photos.
Please enjoy its gorgeous design adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
