This is a vintage Maru obi
with 'tsuzumi'(Japanese hand drum), 'tachibana'(mandarin orange), flower diamond on 'kikko ' (tortoise shell) and 'shippou-tsunagi'(jointed four circles) patterns, which are woven.
Gold foil threads woven on the background and patterns are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft and comfortable touch.
This is in two ways item since it has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both sides.
Smudges and frays can be seen on edges overall.
Also, there are a couple of other flaws such as a folding line.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied as a vintage Obi!
Please enjoy its bold and gorgeous design of vintage!
