This is a vintage Maru obi
with kiku(chrysanthemum) and tsuta(ivy) design, which is dyed and partly embroidered.
Textile is silk with fine crepe and has soft touch.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Basting stitches remain along both edges.
Slight patinas and discoloration are seen overall.
Also it has small holes, stains, and snags.
For the detail, please check figures and photos.
Though it has flaws because of its old age,
we would like you to enjoy this tasteful design of vintage at your hands!
