This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi with colorful design of scroll book, 'uchide no kozuchi'(miracle mallet) on a desk, 'shou-chiku-bai'(auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) and 'jigami'(fan shape) on 'kicho'(partition used by noble people in ancient days), folding fan and so on, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads are added to the design and elegantly shining.
Textile is silk and has rather soft touch.
It is relatively short, 394cm(13'13'').
The pattern on otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.

Frays on both ends are slight, but the ones throughout both edges are prominent.
Discolorations are not noticeable, but the ones on the white part of the pattern are disturbing a little.(They are not so noticeable from a distance.)
Snag(A) and stain(B) are not remarkable from a distance.
It also has folding lines.
Please check photos and figure.

Unfortunately it doesn't have enough strength to be tied.
However, it must be wonderful handicraft material of interior decor!
