This is a graceful vintage Tsume tsuzure Maru obi with 'Tsuzumi'(Japanese hand drum), fans and kaiawase (ancient shell matching game) design, which is woven.
Vivid color design, gold and silver foil threads emerge out against the ivory color base.

It was woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique. One thread by one thread, elaborately with nails.
It takes incredibly long time to complete. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.

The pattern at otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
The stitches on 'taresaki'(end of wide part) is opened.

It has discoloration and patinas on the base, and has brown color stains partly due to its old age.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines and smudges along the lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

It these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its elegant design.
