This is a graceful Fukuro obi
with houou(phoenix) and flowers such as 'sakura'(cherry blossom), 'botan'(peony) and 'sasa'(bamboo grass) on curvy line pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Snags on otaiko are tiny so they are not prominent.
There are small stains on the blank part, but they can be hidden when tied. (indicated as X mark of the figure)(2nd flaw photo)
Besides, it has slight folding lines(no photo).
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its gorgeous pattern adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
