This is an elegant vintage Hon Fukuro obi with Heian nobles on 'kiredori'(overlapping fabric scraps) pattern, which is woven with shining gold foil threads.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short. 414cm(13ft 6.99in)
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

It has discoloration, tiny patinas, brownish stains (3rd flaw photo) and blackish stains (A) on the base due to its age.
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!

*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.
