This is a vintage Maru obi
with flying crane, 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'ume'(Japanese plum) on 'kikko ' (tortoise shell) pattern, which are woven.
Gold foil threads woven on the pattern are gorgeously shining.
Textile is Jinken (rayon) and has rather crisp touch.
Its length is rather short.13'1"(400cm)
Discoloration and tiny patinas by ages can be seen overall, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
Folding line is remained also Otaiko part.
There are several other flaws such as smudges throughout edges.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy its retro and bold design of vintage!
