This is a vintage Maru obi
with a dynamic pine needle pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven on the background and pattern are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
This is in two ways item since it has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both sides.
Prominent folding line can be seen. (the 5th flaw photo)
Red stains can be seen in wide range (upper part of folding line of the wrong side.), although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
There are several other flaws such as frays on corners of Tare and Tesaki and edges and small stains.
Please check detail photos.
It has flaws, but we hope you enjoy its retro and bold design of vintage!
