This is a vintage Maru obi
with colorful 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'matsu'(pine tree) pattern, which is woven.
The vibrant pattern emerges out glamorously against the black background.
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.
Its length is rather short. 400cm(13'1")
Frays can be seen on woven threads.
Also, threads are frayed on some other parts, although it is not indicated on the figure.
There are other couple of flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its retro design of vintage!
