This Fabulous vintage Maru obi
is produced by Heizo Tatsumura.
Its artistic and bold pattern of Karabana 'imaginary flower in china' or lily are woven elaborately.
Pattern is placed upside down, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
Textile is silk, and it has soft touch.
Tatsumura Heizo is signed on Tare end.
Tears can be seen parts of otaiko. (*It is indicated as repaired on the figure.) However, they are small and seem not to be disturbing positionally.
There are other flaws such as slight folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
It has a bit of sense of use, but it still can be tied!
Please enjoy the guise with its strength and brightness on this item with strong impact.
