This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with swirling and 'jigami'(fan shape) pattern, which is woven.
It also has "Kiri" (paulownia) phoenix circle, stream, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'botan'(peony) pattern, which is embroidered.
Shining gold and silver foil threads are added to the three dimensional embroidery pattern.
Textile is exquisite silk and has light touch.

It has three embroidery designs on 'otaiko'(square bow), 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) and 'tesaki'(narrow end) on the right side.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), more maegara will appear.
It has gorgeous three embroidery designs on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and the wrong side of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) on the wrong side.

It has discoloration on the base due to its age, and has tiny patinas.
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
