This is a tasteful Maru obi with dynamic swirling pattern, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
It has the vibrant colors and the gold foiled threads are lavishly woven, and they are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both ends.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
There are a gunpai-mark(referee's fan) and three lines, which are distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co.

*It is relatively short, 420cm(13ft 9.35in).

There are folding lines from 'tesaki'(narrow end) to 'taresaki'(end of part).
It seems like an original owner has enjoyed the various ways of tying.
It has a tiny stain around 'otaiko'(square bow).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

It shows signs of wear, but it is still wearable.
Please enjoy this tasteful fashion!

*Kawashima Textiles Co.*

In 1843, company founder, Jimbei Kawashima, opened a fabrics store in Nishijin, Kyoto.
Now Kawashima has two ongoing businesses, traditional garments/textiles and interior products, such as curtains.
The three lines and Gunpai, referee's fan, emblem are the two significant marks of the brand.
The brand is famous because their products and design are elegant, detailed and sophisticated.
Their Hon Fukuro obi is especially highly evaluated for its comfortableness and evenness in thickness.
