"Many Blues" 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. 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.

Several shades of blue are woven together along with metallic silver threads. The design includes criss-crossing lines that are angled to give the patterning flow and depth. . Solid blue backing. Visible fold line from previous wearing, but excellent vintage condition.

This is a summer obi - it is semi-sheer, very light weight and is fairly stiff, so needs no inner lining.
