This is a summer sheer Ro Maru obi with cheerful chidori and fishing net pattern, which is carefully embroidered.
Fine ice crack pattern is woven with silver foil threads throughout.
Silver and gold foil threads used in the pattern elegantly shine.
Both ends are closed, but there is no lining inside.
It is a very thin and soft Obi as there is no lining.
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
If you use the Otaiko pattern on the main side, only Maegara of Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side shows, but if you use the Otaiko pattern on the wrong side, Otaiko pattern is only on Kansai-maki (rotate obi clockwise) side.

The base is discolored and smudged throughout due to its old age.
Especially the edges and along the folding lines are prominently smudged. (second and third photos after the drawing image)
Folding lines on the belt part have turned dark. (sorry no photos)

Foil paper on the embroidery threads is peeling at (A), and this is on the main side Otaiko pattern, not the wrong side.
Slight stain at Tare end is also on the main side
Please see photos for details.

The fabric is not sturdy enough to tie.
We would like you to enjoy it as a display or turn into a pre-tied Obi!
