This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi
with 'ume'(Japanese plum), 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'kikko'(tortoise shell) 'Hana-bishi' (flower diamond) on cloud pattern, which is woven and dyed partly.
Its vibrant pattern on gold background is so eye-catching!
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The pattern at otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
There are some more reddish and bluish dyestuffs than the figure shown on otaiko and so on.
The threads on edges are frayed partly.
Besides, it has a slight folding line.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
