This is an glamorous Maru obi
with Paulownia 'karakusa'(arabesque) pattern, which is colorfully woven pre WWII.
The gold gleaming against the black background add elegance to it.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
As the figure shown, there are some flaws such as stains and snags but any of those flaws won't be disturbing for wearing.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It might be because of its classical design, it has a bit of sense of use but it's still tie-able if you don't mind those small flaws.
Please enjoy this gorgeous design as via straight-ahead classical motifs.
