This is a beautiful Hon Fukuro obi with stripe, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'botan'(peony), 'Kikyou'(Japanese bellflower), pair butterfly, "Karabana"(imaginary Chinese flower) and 'tatewaku'(waving lines) pattern, which is woven.
Woven gold foil threads are shining tastefully on the base and pattern.
Its various pattern is graceful.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
You can see the 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, that are no problem to wear.

It has two slight stains on 'taresaki'(end of part). (photo of kaikiri lines(end mark line))
Stains could be hidden when you tie it. (2nd imperfection photo)
It also has some other imperfections such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some imperfections, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its refined fashion!
