This is a Kyo-Fukuro Obi (shorter than usual Fukuro Obi) by Kawashima.
It has been woven mountain path(zigzag) pattern.
Gold foil threads are woven at the base and shines elegantly.
Textile is polyester and has rather crisp touch.
There are three lines on the taresaki(end of wide part),
a gourd-shaped war fan mark on the inside of taresaki, which are the trade marks of Kawashima.
Although there is no figure and photo,
There are quite slight folding lines at te-saki(one end) and discoloration at the lining.
However, they don't bother to wear.
There are some small snags but not so disturbing when it tied.
For the detail, please check figures and photos.
However, it's still wearable enough with very good condition.
Please enjoy its elegant design with your kimonos!
