This is a Fukuro obi by This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
It is woven with a Chinese character of Fuku-ju(Happy longevity) pattern, which is woven.
A lot of gold foil thread is woven and shining gorgeously.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
You can see three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark inside the 'tare'(the wide end), which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn, which is not disturbing to wear.

There is a dark stain(the 2nd photo of the flaws) and a brown stain(the 4th photo of the flaws) on the lower 'otaiko'(the square bow), which might be a little noticeable depending on the angle.
There is slight discoloration due to its age. It is discolored relatively prominently in the 'maegara'(the front design) of Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side.
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

Though it has some faults, we hope you enjoy this bright design!
