This is an exquisite Maiko's Darari Obi with 'Kaede'(maple leaf) on brilliantly shining 'matsu'(pine tree) pattern, which is woven.
The gold foiled threads are lavishly woven on the dynamic pattern, and they are elegantly shining.
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 silk and has soft touch.

It has slight musty smell.
There are seams.(On the sheet, they are only on the right side, but there are actually seams on the wrong side too.)
It has frays allover such as corners, ends and edges.

It also has prominent folding lines and prominent stains(A).
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!
Although there are flaws by ages, please enjoy this lovely and rare item!
