This is a vintage Maru obi
with large 'Shokkou'(octagon and rectangle) 'Housouge'(imaginary Chinese flower) pattern, which is woven.
Woven gold foil threads are beautifully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft and comfortable touch.
A part of the base is seen because the threads are frayed.(A)
The stitch is coming loose at about 53cm(20.8in) from the Tare end. (for about 3cm(1.1in))
It has smudges in full length of both edges, and the corners are frayed.
It has many tiny snags.
It has other flaws such as rather prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
The color threads don't have enough strength to tie unfortunately.
Please enjoy its gorgeous vintage design!
