This is a vintage Maru obi
with 'shishi' (lion) and 'Botan'(peony) on 'Yukiwa'(snow crystal) pattern, which is woven.
Woven gold foil threads on the pattern are shining elegantly.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft and comfortable touch.
The otaiko pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Its length is 394cm(12'9"), which is relatively short for Maru Obi.
It has flaws such as frays on the corners of Tare end and Tesaki, a rather large red stain (indicate as dyestuff in the figure) and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy its retro vintage design!
