This is a Fukuro obi by Kawashima Weaving Co, one the most famous obi weavers in Japan.
It has a design of 'Ume' (plum blossom) branch on 'shikishi' (square papers), flower and stream circles, which is woven.
Its Rinpa style design is very elegant and eye-catching.
Textile is soft silk.
Length is 416cm(13'.7"), rather short.
It has distinctive Gunpai marks of Kawashima and three lines inside of Tare end.

It has rather prominent folding lines and other flaws as shown on photos, but they are not disturbing for wearing.

It is in very good condition overall.
This Kawashima obi will brighten up your special day for sure!
