This is an elegant Fukuro obi
with a design of 'Shokko-mon' pattern. Embroidery and drawn work(one of the technique of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) and 'Raden'(design in mother-of-pearl inlay) are added to the Otaiko(square bow) and the 'Maegara'(front patterned part).
Textile is exquisite silk and has smooth touch.
It has stains on the blank part.
Folding lines are prominent, and they can be seen also on the tare end, although they are not marked in the sheet.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Feeling of wearing remains prominently, but it doesn't have fatal damage.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
