This is a vintage Maru obi
with 'aoi'(hollyhock) arabesque pattern, which is woven.
Its bold and colorful pattern is eye-catching!
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has folding lines, small stains and snags.
Discoloration can be seen on white parts of the pattern. (3rd flaw photo)(It may be transferred from the pattern.)
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
