This is a vintage Hon-Fukuro Obi with various Japanese traditional musical instruments such as drums and flute pattern, which is woven.
The large motifs draw peoples attention
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
It was woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique. One thread by one thread, elaborately with nails.
It takes incredibly long time to complete. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.
Textile is tsuzure silk, and has rather stiff touch.

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.

The 'tesaki'(end of folded part) end is roughly sewn to close.
The 'taresaki'(end of wide part) end is not closed.
It is relatively short.(400cm/13'1")

There are two tears which seem to be caused by fraying of woven threads on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly). (refer to the 1st flaws photo)
There is discoloration on the both edges throughout.
Although it's not mentioned on the figure, there is discoloration throughout on the background.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Unfortunately, it maybe no longer in wearable condition due to the tears.
However, it is in good condition as an old item.
Please enjoy the vintage design!
