This is a vintage Maru obi
with graceful sarasa'(chintz) pattern, which is woven.
Foil threads woven on the background and pattern are gorgeously shining.
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.
The length is rather short.13'3"(406cm)
Woven foil threads on the background are peeling off caused by fray on the edge overall.(indicate as smudge in the figure / the 3rd flaw photo)
It has other flaws such as tiny snags and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy its graceful vintage design!
