Description
 
A light and airy feel to this summer obi. Layers of light color, some metallic threads to give it sheen, and a soft touch. Lovely golds, blues, and peach tones create mums and grasses and large flowing petals seem to billow from one side, stretching to towards the other.

As is not uncommon for lighter colored vintage items, there are slight signs of age - light blemishes along the edge in a few places - see photos.

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.
