This is a vintage Maru obi
with 'nadeshiko'(pink), 'kikyou'(balloon flower), 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'botan' (peony) and 'kaede'(maple leaf) on flower cart pattern, which are woven.
Its staid colors have chic atmosphere.
Textile is rather crisp Jinken (rayon).
The pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Its length is rather short. 12'0"(368cm)
Corners of Tare end and Tesaki and overall both edges are frayed.
It has slight folding lines.
Pattern is partly fluffing by frays. (B)
There is a stain (C) on Tesaki end.
Please check detail photos.
It seems not to have enough strength to tie.
However, we hope you enjoy its tasteful design of vintage!
*Real base color is darker than photos.
