This is a Fukuro obi by Toku Yusui.
It is woven with a design of a child and uguisu(bush warbler), and white ume blossoms.
Silver foil thread is woven and shining modestly in the elaborate design.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It comes with a certificate of Nagashima.

The stain on the 'otaiko'(the square bow) is slight and not noticeable from the distance.(refer to the 2nd photo of the flaws)
There are also stains on the patches of patina on the 'maegara'(the front design), but they won't be seen if you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to the left (Rotate obi counterclockwise).
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

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