This is an elegant Hon-Fukuro Obi with Tsujigahana pattern, which is woven.
Gold threads woven in the pattern and background are gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has no lining inside, and has smooth touch.
It was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers inside the tare end.
Both ends seem to be roughly sewn by amateur.

It has slight patinas and discolorations overall, but not so noticeable.
The gold foils are peeling off like (A) on such as 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
It has slight smudges throughout the edges and the edges are slightly curving.
The relatively prominent stains on the wrong side of tare will be hidden when tied.
It has slight folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

However, if these flaws do not bother you, it could be worn.
Please enjoy its gorgeous design!

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