This is a vintage Maru obi
with court carriage, "Matsu"(pine tree) and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on 'Yukiwa'(snow crystal) pattern, which is woven.
Its weaving technique is called 'koukechi ori', which has bumpy effect by using strongly twisted threads.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
It is relatively short.(12'11"/394cm)
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo,
there are a couple of small stains and slight folding lines.
There are some other flaws such as discoloration throughout.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer in wearable condition due to the weaken fabric.
However, it is still charming design which we would like you to enjoy.
