This is a glamorous vintage Maru obi
with vibrant colored flower and oshidori (mandarin duck) motifs, which are woven.
Gold and silver thread woven in the motifs shine brilliantly.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends and enjoyable as Hikinuki knot style.
Textile is exquisite rather glossy silk and has soft touch.
The length is relatively short. 162.20in=412cm
The kaikiri line(end mark line) has 3 lines.
It is not sure but it is probably by Kawashima weaving co. with its high sense of design and weaving.
Though it has no folding lines, it has discoloration, patinas and stains overall.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy this tasteful design full of retro atmosphere.
