This is an elegant vintage Maru obi
with folding fan, phoenix, Japanese traditional instruments and flowers such as 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and "Kiri" (paulownia) pattern, which is woven.
The woven gold foiled threads shine gracefully.
The gentle color tone is impressive.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
It is relatively short Obi.(13.3'/408cm)
The flaw(B) is uneven lines of weaving.(It is described as a snag on the sheet.)
There are some flaws such as discoloration due to its age, slight folding lines and frays on the corners.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Enjoy wearing the tasteful classic design!
