This is a Hon - Fukuro obi with clouds, kikko(tortoise shell) and shippo-tsunagi(jointed four circles) pattern, which is woven.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
You can see three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn, which is not disturbing to wear.

There are folding lines.
There is also stain on the lower 'otaiko'(the square bow), but it won't be seen when it's on.
There is also a small stain on the 'maegara'(the front design) of Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side.
It won't be seen when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to the right(Rotate the obi clockwise).
For details, please check the figure and photos.

It still can be worn enough!
We hope you enjoy this unique fashion!
