This is a vintage Maru obi
with hand drum, scroll book and 'Shou-chiku-bai'(auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) on book pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern are gently shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short. 392cm(12'8")
The otaiko pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Discoloration due to its age can be seen overall. (not shown on the photo)
It has some other flaws such as tiny snags and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It has flaws, but we hope you enjoy its glamorous and graceful design of vintage!
