This is an an elegant Fukuro obi with 'yukiwa'(snow crystal), 'Hanabishi'(flower diamonds) and flower pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Lots of shining gold foil threads are woven.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn, that are no problem to wear.
Although there is no photo of it, you can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

It has some other flaws such as slight folding lines and stains.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

It is in very good condition as a whole.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
