This is a graceful Fukuro obi
with a design of 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) arabesque, 'housouge'(large karabana flower), flower and bird on 'shokkou'(octagon and rectangle), which is embroidered.
The fine embroidered design emerges out against the black background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Gold foil threads woven in the base are tastefully shining.
Although not shown on the photo, it has folding lines.
Discoloration is slight so it is not prominent.
Please check photos for details.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
