This is an elegant Hon Fukuro obi with bamboo fence, 'Higaki'(cypress fence) and 'Kagome' (woven bamboo) pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads are shining on the geometric pattern.
Textile is exquisite silk and has light touch.
Lining is not added inside.
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.

It has a slight stain on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), they will be hidden.
It has folding lines allover.
It has comparatively slight folding lines on 'otaiko'(square bow).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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