This is a vintage Maru obi
with chic lily pattern, which is woven on the tranquil colored background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The otaiko pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Its length is rather short. 364cm(11'9")
The real base color is darker and slight redness photos.
Foils of gold foil threads of Kaikiri line are peeling off and some stitches of Kaikiri line are coming loose.(refer to the 2nd flaw photo)
It has some other flaws such as frays on the corners.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It can't be tied, because fabric becomes weak.
Please enjoy its retro vintage design!
