This is a vintage Maru obi with dynamic dragon on wave pattern, which is woven.
The full impact, colorful pattern with lots of gold foiled threads draw peoples attention.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
It is relatively short.(12'10"/392cm)
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.

It looks like remade obi to make the width of obi narrower from Maru obi.
There are seams on the both edges.
Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo, there are missing white and
green woven threads of the wave pattern due to fray which is located on the just
half of the length of obi. (just like the second photo of flaw photo)
Although the figure has a folding lines all the way from 'tesaki'(end of folded part) through 'taresaki'(end of wide part), there is actually no such a folding line on 'otaiko'(square bow) area.
There are discoloration and small patinas on the background due to its age.
There are some other flaws such as 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 attractive design which only vintage items have.
