This is a graceful Hon Fukuro obi with diamond lattice, pair bird and decorative pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads are shining tastefully.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is sewn by Mitsukoshi one of the famous Japanese department store.
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.
The length is rather short. 414cm(13ft 6.99in)
Lining is not added inside.

Although not shown on the figure, it has slight discoloration on the base due to its age.
A stain on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is tiny and hardly noticeable. (3rd flaw photo)
It has folding lines.
It has smudges along lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some imperfections, please enjoy its graceful pattern!

*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.
