This is a graceful Fukuro obi by Itchiku Koubou known as Tsujigahana design with traditional and contemporary technique.
It has fascinating atmosphere with emerging 'matsukawa-hishi'(pine bark diamond) pattern.
The color of 'sumie' (ink brush painting) technique, beautiful ombre dyeing color and three-dimensional design with shibori(tie-dye) technique are attractive.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the tare end.
Textile is chirimen (crepe) silk and has soft and slightly textured touch.

The length is rather long, 450cm(177.16in)
The design of 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) will appear when you tie with double layered.

There is no folding lines and it seems to be unworn one.

Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has slight discoloration on its base and uneven color dyes.
The tare end is discolored and the hue is the lightest.
It also has slight discoloration near the otaiko(square bow) top, 'Maegara' (front patterned part) side and on the plain part on the creases.

Though it has slight discoloration, it is in very good condition overall.
Please enjoy this glamorous design adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!

*Itchiku Kubota*
One of the famous dyeing industrial artists for Tsujigahana technique.
When he was at age 20, he was inspired by Tsujigahana technique, and after long years of study,
he revived it by incorporating the old technique with the new one and created his original technique which he named "Itchiku-Tsujigahana".
He receives a high evaluation in abroad for his unique design and deep hue in the pattern.
He was awarded 'Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres' in 1990 and 'Culture Director General Prize' in 1993.
