This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi
with powerful hawk and 'matsu'(pine tree) pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The pattern at otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
Its length is rather short, 12'7"1/8(384cm).
Slight folding lines are remained till star mark of the figure.(5th flaw photo)
It has discoloration and patinas overall by ages.(3rd flaw photo)
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
