This is an exquisite Maiko's Darari Obi with auspicious 'shou-chiku-bai'(auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom), 'kiri' (paulownia), 'mino'(raincoat) on 'shokkou'(octagon and rectangle) pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
This Darari Obi was once used by an actual Maiko in Kyoto.
There is a Kamon(family crest) thickly woven with gold threads on taresaki(end of wide part).

The length is more than 6m,(19'68") long enough for a Darari knot.
The Obi shifts left to right as Maiko walks, and the scene is very graceful.
Textile is soft silk.

It has prominent folding lines.
It also has seams and a repaired tear on tesaki(one end).
There are lots of frays overall, on the corners and edges.
Not shown on the sheet, it has a prominent discolorations on taresaki(end of wide part).
A big stain remains on a the blank part near the kamon(family crest).
It also has linear smudges so please check photos and figure.

It is very valuable obi that Maiko in Kyoto actually used.
Although there are these flaws, please enjoy this wonderful design.
