This is a vintage Maru obi
with 'shiba'(grass), 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), dragon, folding fan and gourd on stream pattern, which is dyed.
The fine embroidery works are applied on the pattern for adding extra gorgeousness to it.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both ends.
So, it can be tied with hikinuki knot style.
It is relatively short.(12.8'/392cm)
There is a small hole on the 'otaiko'(square bow).
It may be seen when you tie it.
There are some flaws such as discoloration due to its age, slight folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still wearable as a vintage obi.
Please enjoy the vintage design!
