This is an impressive vintage Maru obi
with a pattern such as flying crane, royal cart and seasonal flower on book, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven on the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Lining is not added inside.
The pattern at otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
Some woven threads are missing by fray.(5th flaw photo)
It has a prominent large stain.
There are other flaws such as discoloration overall(7th flaw photo) and patinas(4th flaw photo).
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
