This is a fabulous Fukuro obi with elegant 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) design, which is woven on the vibrant yellowish green base.
It is woven by Kawashima Orimono Co, one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are gorgeously shining.
The textile is exquisite silk, and has soft touch.
There is no lining inside.
Both ends are roughly sewn.(It doesn't matter when tied.)

There is a gunpai-mark(referee's fan) on the tare end, which is distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co, one of the most famous obi weavers in Kyoto.

There are slight folding lines.(The last photo)
The smudges and frays on both edges and corners are not so noticeable.
The maegara(front patterned part) has a slight stain like (3rd imperfection photo), but it could be hidden when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise).
It has some other flaws, such as small stains, as shown on photos.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, it is in very good condition overall.
We hope you enjoy this stylish fashion!
