This is a vintage Maru obi
with kiku(chrysanthemum) and kaede(maple leaf) pattern.
It has been dyed and partly embroidered elegantly.
Textile is silk and has soft touch.
It has been woven narihira-hishi(flower in the diamond) pattern on the base.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
The length is rather short, 12'7"(384cm).
It has discoloration and patinas due to its old age.
There are a few noticeable stains near maegara(front design).(the 2nd photo of flaws)
Also it has other flaws, so please check detail photos.
It has some flaws because of its old age.
