This is a vintage Maru obi with cloud, 'houou'(phoenix) and 'kiri' (paulownia) pattern, which is dyed and embroidered.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
The wrong side has cloud and 'kiri' (paulownia) pattern.
Textile is glossy 'Shusu'(satin) silk and has smooth touch.
It is relatively short, 396cm(12'99'').
Both ends are roughly sewn.(It doesn't matter when tied.)

Maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.
*The wrong side has maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), designed side of Maegara will show.

The pattern on otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.

There are discolorations, patinas and loose stitches on 'otaiko'(square bow) and they are disturbing a little.(Second and third photos of flaws)
It also has loose stitches on 'otaiko'(square bow) of the wrong side.(the 4th photo of flaws)
It also has folding lines and other tiny flaws.
Please check photos and figure for other flaws.

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