This is a graceful vintage Maru obi
with 'Sarasa'(chintz) pattern, which is woven on the sedate colored background.
Fine embroidery work is added on the main parts.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Pattern is placed upside down, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
It has more tears on the tare end and near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part) than indicated.
It has some other flaws such as loosen stitches on the tesaki (refer to the 5th flaws photo) and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the weaken fabric.
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage as materials.
