This is a charming Fukuro obi with full of birds design, which is woven.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are open, and it does not have a stiff lining inside.
It is woven by Kawashima Weaving Co, one the most famous obi weavers.
Although not shown on the photo, there is a gunpai-mark(referee's fan), which is distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima.
The width is rather short.

The both ends are sewn roughly.(indicated as stitch is coming loose)
There is a stain on the maegara(front patterned part), and it is bothering a little.
Although not shown on the figure, there are some more slight stains near the stain of maegara.
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), they will be hidden.
Folding line is slight, and snag can be hidden when tied.
Please check photos for details.

If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its cute fashion!
