This is a graceful Maru obi with 'shokkou'(octagon and rectangle) flower circles pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
The woven lots of shining gold foil thread pattern is attractive.
Textile is exquisite silk and has light touch.

It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

Although not shown on the figure, it has slight folding lines.
The figure shows that it has a tear, actually it is loose threads.
It also has some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its graceful 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.
