This is a vintage Maru obi
with cloud, bird and 'matsu'(pine tree) pattern, which is woven.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Pattern is placed upside down, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
Its length is rather short. 151.18in(384cm)
The actual background color is less bluish than the photos.
Woven threads are missing by fray in places throughout the edges.
It has discoloration and patinas by ages.
(refer to the 6th flaws photo)
It has some other flaws such as relatively large stains and uneven spot of weaving (refer to the 3rd flaws photo).
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It can't be tied, because fabric becomes weak, but we hope you enjoy its retro design of vintage!
