This is a vibrant vintage Maru obi
with 'botan'(peony ) and `edaume'(plum blossoms on twig) pattern pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern are gorgeously shining and the obi is very impressive.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend, and has rather crisp touch.
The corners of the both ends are frayed, and the both sides have smudges.
There is discoloration all over and also patina from old age.
It also has a folding line so please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
