This is a graceful Fukuro obi with 'Higaki'(cypress fence) and 'Kagome' (woven bamboo) on bamboo fence pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads are shining on the geometric pattern.
Textile is exquisite silk and has light touch.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn, that are no problem to wear.
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

Although not shown on the figure, it has slight folding lines.
It has tiny snags on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side.
They are not noticeable.
It has spots of mold like whitish flaws on the solid parts of the narrow belt part and the wrong side.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

It is in very good condition as a whole.
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!


*Kawashima Textiles Co.*

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.
