This is a subdued red base summer Ro Hon-Fukuro obi with a bold Yukishiba pattern, which is woven with silver and gold foil threads.
'kikko'(tortoise shell) and Hishi (diamond shape) are designed in each Shiba(grass).
Textile is summer sheer Ro silk, and it has soft and smooth touch.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
There is a gunpai-mark(referee's fan) , which is distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co.
Both ends are closed rather roughly.
Actual color is more reddish than shown on photos.

Slight black stains as seen on the third photo below the drawing image are seen at more places than described on the drawing image.
These stains seem like parts of the weft yarns have been discolored, however, they are not too disturbing for wearing.
It has some other flaws, such as folding lines, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

We would like you to enjoy the summery refreshing design!
