This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with houou(phoenix), and flowers such as 'botan' (peony), lily and 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) on 'tatewaku'(waving line) pattern, which is woven.
Its gorgeous, yet sophisticated pattern with foil threads is the feature of Saga-Nishiki.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is not folding lines and it seems to be untied one.
It has tiny patinas but are not so prominent.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
