Description
 
Subtle colors, subtle design - an understated elegance that would suit any formal kimono with silver accents. Certainly formal enough to carry a tomesode or furisode...

Even under a magnifying glass we can't discern if the obi was dyed after weaving or if the threads were colored before being woven. The effect is a snowy, mottled silver, white, and a bit of gold.

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. 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.
