This is a vintage Maru obi
and flower on fan pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven on the background and pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Otaiko part is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
The length is rather short.154.33in(392cm)
Although not shown on the photo, the threads on throughout the edges are missing by fray partially.
It has discoloration overall by ages.
(refer to the 4th flaws photo)
It has some other flaws such as patinas on the tare end (refer to the 2nd flaws photo) and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the weak fabric, but we hope you enjoy its retro and bold design of vintage!
