This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi
with a pattern such as houou(phoenix), 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'shou-chiku-bai' (auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom), which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 12'11"1/8(394cm).
There are frayed parts on the corner of tare end and 'tesaki'(narrow end).
Smudges can be seen throughout both edges.
It has slight discoloration and patinas.
There are other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
