This is a vibrant vintage Maru obi
with 'housouge'(large karabana flower) on 'kikko'(tortoise shell) pattern, which is woven.
Its retro design is eye-catching!
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Kaikiri line on tare end and 'tesaki'(narrow end) are coming loose widely.
Snags(2nd flaw photo) can be seen overall and bothering.
There are other flaws such as discoloration overall(6th flaw photo) and a folding line.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
