This is a fashionable Fukuro obi with wave on 'kasumi'(mist) pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are roughly sewn.(It doesn't matter when tied.)

Not shown in the photos, you can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

There are lots of snags but they are not noticeable under cover of the pattern.
Mold on 'tare'(wide end) are actually green stains however they could not be seen when tied.(Second photo of flaws)
It has prominent folding lines but those on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'taresaki'(end of wide part) are slight.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

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