This is a vintage Maru obi with bold kiku embroidery on woven kanzemizu design.
The three-dimensional colorful embroidery work is so glamorous.
Gold foil threads included in the pattern twinkle gently.
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
Textile is glossy silk, and it has soft to the touch.
Length is 400cm(13'2"), a bit short.

There are three embroidery designs on the main side, Otaiko, Maegara, and Tare end.
Only Tare end has the embroidery on the wrong side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara embroidery will show.

It has slight and small patinas and stains as shown on photos due to its old age.
The corners of Tare and Tesaki ends are frayed, and both edges are smudged.
Folding line is not so prominent.
Please see photos for details.

Because of its old age, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely vintage item to wear!
We would like you to enjoy the beauty of thick embroidery!
