This is a graceful vintage Maru obi
with "Nanten" (nandina), "Doukyou"(bronze mirror) on stream pattern, which is embroidered.
The fine embroidery works which were done a stitch by a stitch are three dimensional and beautifully glossy.
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise).
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.*
There are frays on the corners.
There are smudges on the both sides.
There are some other flaws such as stains, slight discoloration on the plain folding part.
There are noticeable folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Unfortunately, it may no longer in wearable condition due to the weaken fabric.
Please enjoy the vintage design!
