This is a vintage Maru obi
with a design of crane and graceful 'chayatsuji' (water garden scenery),which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven on the design are gorgeously shining.
Textile has rather crisp touch. (It seems to be silk and jinken (rayon) blend.)
Folding line is remained from Tare end. (the 5th flaw photo)
Several tiny snags can be seen. (Fray on the figure is also snag actually, the 3rd flaw photo)
Corners of Tare and Tesaki are frayed, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
There are a couple of other flaws such as discoloration by ages.
Please check detail photos.
It has flaws, but we hope you enjoy its retro and alluring design of vintage!
