This is a fabulous Hon Fukuro obi with elegant 'Keitou' (cockscomb) pattern, which is woven with vibrant foiled
This piece is woven by Tatsumura, one of the most famous obi weaver in Kyoto Nishijin.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are roughly sewn.(It doesn't matter when tied.)
It has the name with 'Made By Heizo Tatsumura'(top brand) inside of Taresaki(end of wide part).

'Maegara' (front patterned part) is designed upward on each sides, and it means this obi is a high quality item.

Stains on the edge of 'maegara' (front patterned part) of Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side are prominent.
Smudges throughout both edges are also prominent.
Other stains and a snag are tiny.
Please check photos and figure.

Although it has some sense of use, it is still wearable enough.

*Heizo Tatsumura*

There are three weaving factories, 'Tatsumura Art Textile', 'Tatsumura Textile', 'Koho Tatsumura', inherited from the first Heizo.
They continue to research for the ancient fragment and inherited the tradition of weaving art creation based on it.
They have been producing original arts which are universally recognized.
