This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi
with such as 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'matsu'(pine tree) on treasure ship pattern, which are woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven on the pattern are glamorously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Otaiko is set upside down, and it's supposed to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Tare and Tesaki corners are frayed, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
Discoloration and patinas can be seen overall.
There are a couple of other flaws such as a folding line.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy its retro and bold design of vintage!
