This is a graceful Hon Fukuro obi with 'matsu'(pine tree), gosho-guruma(royal cart), 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'ume'(plum blossoms) on folding fan pattern, which is woven.
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.
Gold foil threads are added to the colorful classical design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

Snags on 'otaiko'(square bow) are not noticeable under cover of the pattern.

Stains on 'maegara' (front patterned part) is actually on near tesaki(one end) and it could not be seen when tied.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines so please check photos and figure.

If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its elegant design.

*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.
