This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi
with 'tsuzumi'(Japanese hand drum), dynamic dragon and 'shishi' (lion) pattern, which is woven.
Its bold large pattern is attractive.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
This is in two ways item since it has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both sides.
It has discoloration overall, due to its old age. (the 6th flaw photo)
Also, patinas can be seen overall, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
There are several other flaws such as folding lines, smudges on the lines, small snags and stains.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy this gorgeous vintage design!
