This is an elegant Hon-Fukuro Obi with classical pattern such as young pine and 'Seigaiha'(wave) on minato-dori(triangle shape), which is woven.
This piece is made by Kawashima Textiles Co.
Gold threads are woven on the geometric pattern.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are roughly sewn, but not disturbing for wearing.
There is a gunpai-mark(referee's fan) inside the tare, which is distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co, one of the most famous obi weavers in Kyoto.

The lining has discoloration and tiny patinas, and the outside has slight discoloration, too.
The rather large stains on the belt part will be hidden when tied.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For details, please check the figure and photos.

It's still wearable enough in very good condition.
Please enjoy this glamorous design adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
