This is a refined opened Nagoya obi with 'shokkou'(octagon and rectangle), seasonable flower, butterfly and spool pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Its soft color pattern is attractive.
Woven 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.

Loose threads on 'taresaki'(end of part) seem to be caused by unpicking to confirm the mark.
It has many and prominent stains on lining of the wrong side.
Stains could be hidden when you tie it.
It also has some other imperfections such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although not shown on the figure and photo, it has many and tiny spots of mold.

It has slight musty smell.

Though it has some imperfections, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its refined fashion!

*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.
