This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with flower circles and 'Karabana' (imaginary flower in china) with phoenix and cranes on dish design, which is woven.
Foil threads included in fabric and the pattern elegant shine.
Textile is soft silk.
Approxmately the 60% of one side is patterned ('Rokutsu').

Otaiko pattern on both sides are placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
Maegara is only on one side, please use Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) for the main side, and Kansai-maki (rotate obi clockwise) for the wrong side.

The base is discolored due to its old age, and there are fine patinas and brown stains in places.
there are also rather strong line of wrinkle on the wrong side of the Otaiko pattern. (sorry no photos)
There are also reddish spots of stains along the left edge of the main side.
It has some other flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

Because of its old age, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely vintage item.
