This is a vintage Maru obi
with elegant 'Sarasa'(chintz) pattern, which is woven on the slightly greenish black background.
It has chic atmosphere with tranquil colors.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The kaikiri lines(end mark line) are on both sides, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
It has another tear in the middle between the tare end and the star mark of the sheet.
The tear on the tare end will be hidden when tied.
It has some other flaws such as frays on both corners.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable because the fabric is getting weak.
Please enjoy its charming and retro design of a vintage.
