This is an impressive Nagoya obi with swirling pattern, which is woven with a lot of gold foil thread.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

It has a rather prominent wrinkle on 'otaiko'(square bow), that may be disturbing. (1st flaw photo)
It also has some other flaws such as rather prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its impressive fashion!

*Kawashima Textiles Co.*

In 1843, company founder, Jimbei Kawashima, opened a fabrics store in Nishijin, Kyoto.
Now Kawashima has two ongoing businesses, traditional garments/textiles and interior products, such as curtains.
The three lines and Gunpai, referee's fan, emblem are the two significant marks of the brand.
The brand is famous because their products and design are elegant, detailed and sophisticated.
Their Hon Fukuro obi is especially highly evaluated for its comfortableness and evenness in thickness.
