This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi
with unique design of ivy, which is woven on the undulation patterned background like wood-grain.
Pattern is placed upside down, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Though it does not have much of sense of use, it has a few small snags.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
This piece with its background of woven koukechi-ori technique seems not to have enough strength to tie due to its old age.
It could be easily torn in the future.
It is no longer tie-able, but it must be an amazing handicraft material or interior decor!
