This is a vintage Maru obi
with large 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) diamond pattern, which is woven.
The large and dynamic pattern is impressive.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend, and it has relatively crisp touch.
Kaikiri lines are on both sides, and it is suitable for Hikinuki knot style also.
It has patinas overall, and especially prominent on the tare and tesaki ends.
It has some other flaws such as relatively prominent folding lines and rather large stains.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws, it is in very good condition overall.
Please enjoy its dynamic vintage design.
