This is an impressive vintage Maru obi
with 'genjiguruma'(wheel of royal cart) on 'Fundou'(weight) pattern, which is woven.
Its vibrant pattern emerges out against the black background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
Lots of foil threads of the fundou pattern are peeled off by fray.(3rd flaw photo)
There are frayed parts on the corners of tare end and 'tesaki'(narrow end). (indicated as smudge)
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!
