This is an exquisite Hon Fukuro obi with flower circles, phoenix and 'hana karakusa' (flower arabesque) on 'Michinaga-dori'(wavy line) pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Lots of shining gold and silver foil threads pattern has graceful atmosphere.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Lining is not added inside.
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 streaky discoloration along creases next to 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), that may be rather disturbing. (2nd flaw photo)
It has slight and tiny patinas on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side, that are not so noticeable. (5th flaw photo)
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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