This is a chic vintage Maru obi
with matswu on hazy mist pattern, which is woven.
The woven foil threads appear gracefully against the chic hue.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The kaikiri lines(end mark line) are on both ends and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
The stitches are a little coming loose on the tesaki.
The foiled threads is partially becoming blackish by fray on 'Maegara' (front patterned part).(A)
It has some black tiny stains on the tesaki.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines and smudges along the lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It is no longer wearable because the fabric is becoming weak.
Please enjoy its retro and chic design.
