This is a fabulous Fukuro obi
with 'Tabane-noshi'(bundled paper stripes) and 'Ume' (plum blossom) design, which is dyed.
Drawn work(one of the technique of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) is elegantly added.
Tiny gold glazing foils added on the background are shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The snag on otaiko(square bow) is tiny.
(refer to the 2nd flaws photo)
The stains will be hidden when tied.
(refer to the 1st flaws photo)
It also has whitish stains and folding lines.
(refer to the 3rd flaws photo)
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It's still wearable enough in very good condition.
Please enjoy this glamorous design adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
