This is a vintage Fukuro obi with flying cranes pattern, which is woven.
The flying cranes pattern was both woven and dyed with richly used foiled threads which make it very gorgeous.
Textile is exquisite relatively stiff silk.
Although it doesn't have a stiff lining inside, it has rather stiff texture.

There is another 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern in between 'otaiko' and 'taresaki'(end of wide part) which will be seen inside of 'otaiko' when you tie it. It is so called "Ura-Taiko" (wrong side taiko). It makes this obi very luxurious which can be seen just a little bit. It is the obi which is outstanding from regular 'otaiko' pattern obi.

It seems to be a remade obi from maru obi. So that, the wrong side is relatively new fabric.

There is no folding line. It seems to be an unworn piece.
There are discoloration, fine patinas and stains on the background due to its age.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
