"Silver Butterflies" 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. 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 a light cream ro silk background with folding fan shapes brightly colored n green and orange. Large metallic silver butterflies seem to float between. This is a light, open weave silk (called "ro") with a white lining that gives the obi body and a stiffness that would create a lovely bow.

There's a slightly visible fold line on the blank area and one small blemish in the middle.

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