"Floating Snowflakes" Fukuro Obi

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. Usually, there is a one yard "blank" section on the front, as is common with contemporary fukuro obi, where some cost can be saved by leaving it blank where the first wrap layer of the belt portion occurs, since it doesn't show to the public.

This obi features scattered copper and cocoa-colored medallions, each filled with a snowflake and floating against hashtag-filled clouds. Wonderfully woven. A visible fold line on the blank area.

See the videos below on a way to tie this obi or to learn about the different styles of obi.
