This is a gorgeous Maiko's summer Ro Zentsu Darari obi with 'Hagi'(Japanese bush clover) , heavenly-bamboo and "Kiri" (paulownia) pattern, which is woven with gold foiled threads on the black background.
This Darari Obi was once used by an actual Maiko in Kyoto.
There is a Kamon(family crest) thickly embroidered with gold threads on 'taresaki'(end of part).
The length is more than 6m(19'68") which is long and heavy enough for a Darai knot.
It comes to mind about the graceful scene of swaying belt from left to right as Maiko walks.
Textile is exquisite transparent Ro silk and has soft touch.

It has slight discoloration allover.
There are some peeling spots of woven foil threads from frays.
It shows signs of wear, and the threads got twisted on some parts.(A, B)
There are some frays that has been repaired with small cloth. (Refer to the 3rd and 4th flaw photo)
The cloth on 'tesaki'(narrow end) are folded into the wrong side and sewn together.
Also, there are some seams on the both right and wrong sides.
It seems like it has been repaired by cutting and transplanting the cloth that is in a good condition.(refer to the 2nd flaws photo)
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

This Darari Obi is indeed a very rare item, it actually worn by a Maiko in Kyoto!
Please enjoy this gorgeous gold and black pattern for summer!
