This listing is for a traditional fukuro style obi with large repeated family crests (called mon) - mums and paulownia - in bright gold against a rich orange background. Each design is bordered with woven pastels.

The fold line is visible on the front's blank area and the backside, see photos, but otherwise in greatvcondition.

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.

See the videos below to learn about the different styles of obi as well as ways to use them in your decor.
