This is a vintage Maru obi
with dragon on rock mountain pattern, which is woven and dyed.
Silver foiled threads woven on the pattern are gorgeously glossy.
Textile is silk and has rather crisp touch.
The otaiko pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'Hikinuki' style.
It has no stiff lining inside.
Overall, it has rather prominent discoloration.
It has stains on 'tare'(wide end) and 'otaiko'(square bow).
It has patinas on the narrow belt part and dyestuffs around 'tesaki'(the end of folded, narrow belt).
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the weak fabric by ages.
please enjoy its retro and charming design which only vintage items have.
