This is a vintage Maru obi
with a chic bamboo pattern, which is woven.
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
There are kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both ends
which could be tied with hikinuki knot style.
There are frays on the corners.
There are some spots on the kaikiri lines(end mark line) where foils of gold foiled threads have come off, and the base threads can be seen.(A)
There are snags on 'taresaki'(end of wide part).
There are some other flaws such as slight folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very retro design which only vintage items have.
