This is a vintage summer Maru obi
with picture plate motifs, which are mostly dyed and embroidered in places.
Phoenix, dragon and 'karako'(Chinese child) are designed in its motifs.
Textile is transparent ro silk and has soft touch.
The pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
It has lots of patinas in the background, because of its old age.
There are folding lines.
