This is a Fukuro obi
with gorgeous phoenix
and flower circles pattern, which is woven against silver base color.
Silver and gold foil threads included in fabric and the pattern twinkle gently.
Both ends are closed, but there is no lining inside.
Silver foil threads included in the fabric of Maegara are discolored, so please use Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) for a better Maegara.
There is a large snag on the blank part, but it will not show when tied.
Stains one Tare end will show when tied and it maybe noticed.
It has some other flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.
If you do not mind the small flaws mentioned, it can continue to be worn.
