This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi
with 5 large 'Hana-bishi' (flower diamond ) 'kikko' (tortoise shell) motifs on the woven colorful 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'Botan'(peony) pattern, which is embroidered with thin thread elaborately.
It has magnificence that never seen.
It seems to have connection with Maiko (apprentice geisha) and child geisha, but not sure.
Anyway it has incredible gorgeousness.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has frays on the tare corners and many tiny snags.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Please enjoy the gorgeous classical taste of Japanese vintage via this item.
