This is a vintage Maru obi
with charming design - pastel colors shading is dyed in the both sides, and butterfly motif is elaborately embroidered.
Both sides can be tied - one side has butterfly motif only in otaiko part, and another side has butterfly in the otaiko, maegara(front patterned part) and tare end.
Textile is sioze silk and has soft touch.
It has a rather prominent folding line, and slight frays at places.
It has some other flaws as photos and figure show, but as a whole it is in very good condition and can be tied on vintage kimonos!
