This is a vintage Maru obi with a gorgeous pattern, which is woven in the both sides.
A lot of gold foil thread is woven and shining against the large pattern.

It was woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique. One thread by one thread, elaborately with nails.
It takes incredibly a long time to complete.

It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.
It also has "Hatsurikou" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is distinctive of Tsume tsuzure weave.
The pattern on the otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from the kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with the hikinuki style.
The pattern is at four places, 'tare-saki'(tare end), 'otaiko'(the square bow), 'maegara'(the front design) and the 'te-saki'(one end).

There is discoloration in the base due to its age.
There is a rather dark black stain on 28cm(11.2in) from the end.(refer to the 3rd photo of the flaws)
There are stains on the wrong side, which is not bothering so much.
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 brilliant vintage design!
