This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi
with a design of flower circles such as 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'ume'(Japanese plum) and 'sasa'(bamboo grass), which is embroidered.
Its vibrant colored design is eye-catching.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
Discoloration, due to its old age can be seen overall. (the 8th flaw photo)
It has some other flaws such as a slight reddish stain (*It is indicated as dyestuff on the figure. the 4h flaw photo), small stains, folding lines and smudges on the lines (the 4th and 5th flaw photos).
Please check detail photos.
It seems not to have enough strength to tie.
However, we hope you enjoy its retro vintage design!
