This is a graceful Nagoya obi with charming top pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads are woven in the pattern.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
There is a gunpai-mark(referee's fan), three lines and signature on tare, which are distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

Slight small stains on upper 'otaiko'(square bow) and otaiko part are not so bothering.(2nd flaw photo)
It has slight discoloration from 'tare'(wide part) to otaiko, but it is not so disturbing.
Besides it has folding lines, so for the details please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, please enjoy its zestful fashion!

*Kawashima Textiles Co.*

In 1843, company founder, Jimbei Kawashima, opened a fabrics store in Nishijin, Kyoto.

Their Hon Fukuro obi is especially highly evaluated for its comfortableness and evenness in thickness.
