This is a fabulous summer maru obi
with beautiful waterwheel and swirl pattern, which is woven and embroidered.
Especially silver embroidery part is gorgeous and impressive!
Textile is ro, summer sheer silk.
It has soft touch.
There is not folding line, but there are some discoloration and stains. The stains are rather prominent in the tare end, above and below the otaiko part.
Most of them will not be seen when it is tied, but the stains in the tare end may be seen partly in tare ( the stains are 7cm - 2.8in from the end ).
As a whole it is in very good condition.
