This vintage maru obi
has absorbing 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), peony and crane circle pattern, which is beautifully woven with glossy threads.
Textile is silk and jinken(rayon) blend and has medium and comfortable touch.
There are patinas in places and discolorations in the background.
It has rather prominent smudges in the right and left sides of tare, but the other flaws such as stains and folding lines are not so disturbing and as a whole, it is in very good condition and it can be tied!
