This is a graceful vintage Maru obi
with auspicious design such as phoenix, bamboo leaf and 'Karabana' (imaginary flower in China) on 'tatewaku'(waving line) pattern, which is woven.
Textile is jinken(rayon) and has rather crisp touch.
It is relatively short.153.54in(390cm)
Pattern is placed upside down, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
The stitches are coming loose throughout the edges.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, the threads are missing in places throughout the edges by fray.
It has some other flaws such as discoloration by ages overall and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the weaken fabric.
Please enjoy its gorgeous vintage design!
