This is an impressive vintage Maru obi
with decorative pattern, which is woven boldly.
The vibrant pattern emerges out dynamically against the black background.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend, and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 12'11"7/8(396cm).
It has a small but prominent stain near otaiko.(A)
The stitches of tare end are coming loose by fray.
The stains on the wrong side near tare are rather large and noticeable.
It also has discoloration overall and smudges throughout both edges.
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
