This is a Hon - Hanhaba obi with a hanamon(flower circle) and 'karabana'(an imaginary Chinese flower) pattern, which is woven.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
You can see three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.
Foil thread with gradation and Gold and silver foil thread are woven in its design, shining gorgeously.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn, which is not disturbing to wear.

There are slight discoloration along the creases, which is not bothering.
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

If you do not mind these faults, it still can be worn enough!
We hope you enjoy this fashionable design that has great presence!
