This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi
with dragon and 'housouge'(large karabana flower) on 'shippou-tsunagi'(jointed four circles) pattern, which is dyed and woven.
The vibrant pattern emerges out against the sedate colored background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The pattern at otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
It has discoloration(3rd flaw photo) and patinas(5th flaw photo) overall by ages.
Large stains can be seen and bothering.
There are other flaws such as folding lines and loosing stitches.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
