This is a Hon-Fukuro Obi by Kawashima.
It has 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) on diamond lattice pattern, which is woven with three dimensional-look Fukure-ori technique.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

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 Tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

*The pattern inside the Hishi (diamond shape) has slight baby pink to it, and the base color also has tint of pink hue.

The slight yellowish stains on Tare end maybe notice when tied (fifth photo after the drawing image), but other stains mentioned are not disturbing.
The wrong side has slight discoloration, but it is not disturbing for wearing. (sorry no photos)

It has some other flaws, such as a slight folding line, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

If you do not mind the small flaws mentioned, it can continue to be worn.
We would like you to enjoy the graceful design!

*It has slight smell of long time storage*


*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.
