This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi with butterflies on 'Seigaiha'(wave) pattern, which is woven.
The embroidered black butterflies gives a stylish impression.
The gold and silver foil threads are woven on the pattern and they are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is relatively short, 400cm(13ft 1.48in).
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
The 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is on one side, and the design will show when you tie with Kanto wrap side(Rotate obi counterclockwise).

There are 5-6 patinas on 'otaiko'(square bow) which are tiny but prominent.
The stains on 'otaiko'(square bow) are not so noticeable.
The prominent stains will be hidden when you tie.
There are prominent stains along the folding lines on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), but they can be hidden by folding when you tie.
Most of the stains are tiny and not so noticeable.
There are prominent folding lines, slight discoloration (B) and smudges (A).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Not on the sheet or photos, but there are prominent peeling spots of gold and silver foil threads in places.
It has prominent wrinkles of folding on the design of 'otaiko'(square bow), but they will be hidden when you tie.

Although there are flaws by ages, it is relatively in a very good condition.
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
