This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi with flower raft with 'Shoubu'(iris) and 'tessen'(clematis) on 'kanzesui'(swirl) pattern, which is dyed.
Elaborate embroidery works are added to the pattern partly.
Textile is soft silk.
It is relatively short.(408cm/13'4")
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both ends. However, only one side has otaiko pattern.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
Although it won't bother you to wear it, the stitches of 'tesaki'(end of folded part) and 'taresaki'(end of wide part) are a little rough.

There is noticeable discoloration throughout due to its age.
There is a faint but large noticeable stain on the 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) which will be seen when you tie it to show the embroidered 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern.(C)
There are some other imperfections such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo, there is a 1cm(0.4") long tear on the 'taresaki'(end of wide part) which doesn't have embroidered on it.

Although the discoloration and stains are noticeable, it is still very tasteful design which only vintage items have.
It must be a good handcraft material.
