It is woven 'Tatsumura Heizou Sei' on 'taresaki'(end of part).

The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn.
The length is rather short. 406cm(13ft 3.84in)

It has slight discoloration allover, and has vintage feelings.
It has rather prominent discoloration in places, that are disturbing because of its base color.
It has loose threads of about 12cm(4.72in) and 10cm(3.93in) size on 'taresaki'(end of part).
It needs to repair before you wear.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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

*There is 'Heizou Tatsumura', but actually in this era, counterfeit products are also circulating.
So it is unclear.

*Heizo Tatsumura*
The first generation Heizo Tatsumura is known for an authority of reconstruction of ancient fragment, and he raised his work created by the collection of the skill of the texture to the level of the art textile.
There are three weaving factories, 'Tatsumura Art Textile', 'Tatsumura Textile', 'Koho Tatsumura', inherited from the first Heizo.
They continue to research for the ancient fragment and inherited the tradition of weaving art creation based on it.
They have been producing original arts which are universally recognized.
