This is a luxurious maru obi
woven with tsuzure weaving technique.
The charming kiku-karakusa (mum arabesque) pattern is so thickly woven.
Golden outlines of kinkoma embroidery add elegance to it,
Textile is tsuzure silk, and it has a little stiff and firm touch.
This piece seems to have been frequently tied.
There are several flaws such as stains, smudges and rather prominent folding line.
Also, its base is mildly discolored on the whole.
The stitches along the side hem are partially cut.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
