This is a stylish men's kaku obi with takara-zukushi (treasure assortment) design, which is woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique.
Textile is exquisite silk and has moist touch.
There are a gunpai-mark(referee's fan) and three lines on 'taresaki'(end of part), which are distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co.
The 'taresaki'(end of part) and 'tesaki'(narrow end) are open.

There are tiny whitish molds on the design and they are noticeable if you look closely. (Refer to the 3rd flaw photo)
There are stains on the plain part, but they will be hidden when you tie. (Refer to the 2nd flaw photo)
