This is a glorious vintage Maru obi
by Tatsumura Heizo, one of the most famous obi weaver in Kyoto Nishijin.
Gorgeous royal cart is dynamically woven with lots of glittering foiled threads.
Pattern is placed upside down partly, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
Textile is rather thick Tsuzure silk.
It seems to be tied well, smudges on its base and folding lines are prominent.
Though not indicated, the stitches of the end is partly coming loose.
There are some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though the smudges are prominent, please enjoy this glamorous design of Tatsumura Heizo adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
