This is a graceful Hon Fukuro obi with large 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) pattern, which is woven.
Foiled threads gently sparkle with elegance.
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. ]
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The stitches from tare end to upper 'otaiko'(square bow) are rough.

It has rather prominent folding lines.
It has some other flaws which are not noticeable.
Please check photos and figure.

It is still wearable enough.

Please enjoy this elegant fashion.
