This is a zestful Fukuro obi
with scenery design of mountain, stream and 'matsu'(pine tree), which is woven.
Silver foil threads woven in the background are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Lining is not added inside.
Smudges on the tare end will appear when tied and they are disturbing.
There are stains on the maegara(front patterned part).(3rd flaw photo)
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), they will be hidden.
There are other flaws such as rather prominent folding lines and slight discoloration on the wrong side.
Please check detail photos.
It seems to be not suitable to wear due to the smudges.
However, we hope you enjoy its tasteful design as a handicraft material!
