This is an elegant Hon-Fukuro Obi with 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'botan'(peony), 'sasa'(bamboo leaf) and 'ume'(plum blossoms) on book design, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold and silver foil threads are added to the design and elegantly shining.
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.
Both ends are roughly sewn.(It doesn't matter when tied.)

Not shown on the sheet, it has slight discoloration by ages on the base.
It also has folding lines.
Please check photos and figure.

If these minor flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy this elegant design.

*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.
