This is a vintage Hon - Fukuro obi with a 'shokko'(an octagon and rectangle), phoenix and dragon pattern which is woven.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short, 400cm(13'1").
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

Though not shown in the figures, there is slight discoloration in the base due to its age.
there are stains on the 'tare'(the wide end) and 'maegara'(the front design) of Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side, but they are slight.
(refer to the 2nd photo of flaws and photo(A))
There are some other faults such as slight folding lines and seams on the 'te-saki'(one end).
For details, please check the figure and photos.

If you do not mind these slight faults, it still can be worn.
We hope you enjoy this stylish fashion!
