This is a vintage Maru obi
with dynamic 'kusudama'(round-shaped ornament) pattern, which is woven.
Textile is relatively stiff silk and jinken(rayon) blend.
It is relatively short.(12'"/384cm)
*The real color of it is a little bit more gray-beige.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
There is noticeable discoloration caused by patinas throughout on the background.
(*There is only discoloration on the sheet.)
There are noticeable smudges on the both sides.
There are some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
It has slight musty smell.
If you don't mind those minor flaws, it is still in good condition to wear as a vintage obi.
Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
