This is a Hon Fukuro obi by Kawashima Textile Co.
It has small fabrics, ropes and Japanese Washi include in fabric.
Waves, 'Karakusa' (arabesque) , and 'botan'(peony) 'Karakusa' (arabesque) in Matsu (pine tree) with pieces of gold foils accented Washi are put together.
The design is very artistic yet simple, and its harmony is very impressive.
Textile is silk, and it has soft to the touch.
There are marks of weaver on Tare end.
Both ends are fastened rather unevenly, but it is not disturbing for wearing.
