This is a chic antique Maru obi
from Meiji Period(1868-1912).
It has 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) 'karakusa'(arabesque) pattern, which is woven finely.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 12'4"(376cm).
It has a prominent folding line.
There are frayed parts on the corner of tare end and 'tesaki'(narrow end).
Please check detail photos.
It is in very good conditions as a vintage, but it is no longer wearable due to the fabric is getting weak.
However, we hope you enjoy its stylish pattern!
