This is an enchanting vintage maru obi.
and ornate Torikabuto (costume helmet for Gagaku) are colorfully woven.
Textile is silk, and it's soft.
The pattern is set upside down, and it's supposed to be tied in a special way called 'hikinuki'.
Discoloration and patinas are rather spread, and they seem a little prominent along the side edges.
There are other flaws including a folding line.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
