This is a brilliant Fukuro obi
with seasonal flower circle, young pine and classical pattern on 'Tabane-noshi'(bundled paper stripes) , which is woven.
Gold foil threads are woven overall and they are glamorously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft and comfortable touch.
It seems like the original owner of this obi enjoyed many fancy bow.
So that there are folding lines and wrinkles through out.
It has molds on the plain part, but they will be hidden when tied.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
However, if these small flaws mentioned do not bother you, it still may be tied at formal occasions.
Please enjoy its glamorous fashion!
