This is an elegant Fukuro obi with 'Tsubaki'(camellia), seasonable flower, 'Karakusa'(arabesque), bird, butterfly and 'tatewaku'(waving lines) pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads are shining modestly.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

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 a snag of about 1cm(0.39in) size on butterfly design near middle.
It has slight folding lines, that are no problem to wear.
It has rather prominent wrinkles near 'tesaki'(narrow end).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its elegant pattern!

*Kawashima Textiles Co.*

In 1843, company founder, Jimbei Kawashima, opened a fabrics store in Nishijin, Kyoto.

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.
