"August Grasses" Summer Fukuro Obi
This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front.
Light, lovely, wine colored obi with an airy, open weave meant to be worn in the hot and humid days of Japanese summer. The open weave allows the white liner to show through. Focal point is a whispy, droopy sprig of flowering grasses woven in gray and pink.
