This is a vintage Maru obi
with 'kaede'(maple leaf), 'ume'(Japanese plum) and 'manju-giku'(manju shaped chrysanthemum) on jigami'(fan shape) pattern, which are woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven on the pattern are elegantly 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.
Real base color is little more darker beige than photos.
Folding line is remained from Tesaki to Tare end.
A couple of gold foil threads on Tare end are coming loose.
There are several other flaws such as overall discoloration by ages (the 5th flaw photo) and small snags.
Please check detail photos.
It has flaws, but we hope you enjoy its retro and adorable design of vintage!
