Kikyo Summer Fukuro Obi

Today was my birthday, so I decided I would get a "birthday gift to me" with some money I was given. Since it's already been in the 60s and 70s over the past few weeks here in Memphis, I've been getting the summer bug. I had yet to get a summer obi to complete my ro ensemble, so I figured there was no better time than now, and I bought this fukuro obi I've been eyeing for a while now. It's a simple white/cream color with silver kikyo woven in.

Since I have some kimono demonstrations to do this summer, this will really help with keeping me cool, since some may involve going outdoors. After debuting my first ro kimono last summer, I learned the difference between ro and hitoe is phenomenal, especially during a humid Memphis summer!
