In this exquisite Maru Obi, what makes the coloration so different is the tremendous amount of pure gold threads woven into the design. The gold is not only part of the intricacy of the pattern; it has also been woven into the background, creating an overall sheen to this Obi that is unparalleled. Add to this the depth and brilliance of the remaining colors, with the inclusion of the rare lapis that also appears to be almost purple, a stunning example of the very best Meiji Era Maru Obi
