with a design such as 'Matsu'(pine tree), phoenix
and 'Ume' (plum blossom), which is woven.
Gold threads woven in the pattern are gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite rather thick silk and has smooth touch.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) changes depending on the way of wrapping.
The length is rather short.159.05in(404cm)
This piece must be remade from vintage tsume-tsuzure Maru obi
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure
*Though the photo shows uneven colors by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
Though it has a stain and frays on the tare end and tesaki, they will be hidden when tied.
It has linear smudges on the wrong side.
It has seams on 9.84in(25cm) and 64.57in(164cm) (upper otaiko) from the tare end, but they will be hidden if tied neatly.
