This is a vintage Maru obi with tatewaku(waving line), oshidori(mandarin duck) and flower arabesque pattern which is woven.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil thread is woven and shining gorgeously on the vivid color pattern.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
No thick lining is added inside.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on both ends, which is suitable for Hikinuki knot style.
You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

It has discoloration in the base due to its age.
It also has tiny patches of patina.
The stitches of the belt part are coming loose about 15cm(6.0in).
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

Though it has some faults, we hope you enjoy this gorgeous vintage design!
