This is an impressive vintage Maru obi
with houou(phoenix) and 'botan' (peony) on 'tatewaku'(waving line) pattern, which is woven.
The vibrant pattern emerges out against the sedate colored background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has discoloration and patinas by ages overall.
(refer to the 5th flaws photo)
It has stains in places (refer to the 3rd flaws photo) and especially linear one on the tare end is noticeable.
It has some other flaws such as frays on both corners.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws, it is in very good condition overall.
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
