This is a vintage Maru obi
with brave dove and 'sakura'(cherry blossom) patterns, which are woven.
Its retro patterns of vintage are eye-catching.
Silver foil threads woven on the patterns are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Otaiko is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Discoloration can be seen overall, although no photo.
It has also patinas overall, although they are small.
There are a couple of other flaws such as tiny stains and folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
