This is a fabulous Maru obi
with a design of 'shippou-tsunagi'(interlocking circles), 'kiri'(paulownia), 'tachibana'(mandarin orange), and butterfly in circle, which are finely embroidered.
Delicate embroidered work is added on the invisible wrong side as well.
Textile has a special kind of comfortable and stiff touch of tsuzure weaving.
Besides folding lines, it has some flaws with ages such as patinas.
However, it is an undeniable piece that it's still enjoyable with its delicate embroidered work of classical motifs.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
