This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi
with 'kaioke' (a hexagonal container to store clam shells, which are used ancient shell matching game - 'kaiawase' ), 'shippou-tsunagi'(jointed four circles) and seasonal flower pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Lining is not added inside.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
It has discoloration by ages overall.
There are other flaws such as a folding line(5th flaw photo) and stains(4th flaw photo).
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
