This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi
with rural house and 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven on the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The threads throughout both edges are missing by fray.(3rd flaw photo)
The gold foil threads of kaikiri line(end mark) are coming loose.
There are other flaws such as a folding line and stains(5th flaw photo).
Please check detail photos.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the fabric is getting weak.
However, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
