This is a Nagoya obi
with artistic flower pattern, which is woven.
Its design is very unique and interesting!
Textile is silk and has soft touch.
It has very small stain in the maegara( the patterned part of belt part, which will be the belly part when it is tied ) part, which is hardly noticed.
It is not used and almost in excellent condition.
*Recently we won some obi bolts ( not completed obi yet ).
They are little bit old one from around late Showa period(1926-1989), and include wonderful design.
Because of their old age, they have some patinas or slight/small stains, but they are not used and in very good condition.
We completed them as obi. So these obi are not used, but has slight flaws, which are not serious damage, and can be worn. This piece is one of such obis.
