This is an elegant Fukuro obi with 'jigami'(fan shape) of seasonal flower pattern, which is woven.
The gold foiled threads are lavishly woven and elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk with woven wave and cloud pattern and has light touch.
It is relatively short, 418cm(13ft 8.57in).

The plain part on this obi is located on the different area compared to the normal Obi, you will need to make 'otaiko'(square bow) first and then tie.
If you wrap the narrow belt part first as usual, the 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) will not be shown.
You will need to use the clips and adjust the position with the tied 'otaiko'(square bow), and then move the 'tesaki'(narrow end) to show 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).

There are holes on the both edges of the wrong side for pushing strings through, and by tying the strings, you can make a triangle for 'tesaki'(narrow end).
On the photo, the strings are on the right side, but you will need to bring those strings on the wrong side.
If you get used to using these strings, it is easy to tie this kind of Obi.

The fray (A) is around the narrow belt part and it will be hidden when you tie.
The frays on the corners are slight.
There are seams (B) and the folding lines on the wrong side.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Please enjoy this luxurious design, it is perfect for celebratory occasions!
