This is an elegant vintage Tsume tsuzure Fukuro obi with 'azami'(thistles) and butterfly pattern, which is woven.
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
It has the same pattern on "Ura-Taiko" (wrong side taiko) which will be seen inside of 'otaiko' when you tie it.
It also has "Hatsurikou" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is the distinctive feature of Tsume tsuzure weave.
Textile is exquisite relatively stiff silk.
