This is a vintage summer Nagoya obi
- vivid pink 'kikyo'(Japanese bellflower) motif is boldly woven.
Textile is ro, summer sheer silk.
The light blue base is discolored with age, and it's prominent about the otaiko (square bow) area.
Also, the outside and the inside of the folds are discolored.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
We can't say it is in very good condition, but still charming piece for its wonderful design. It must be an excellent handicraft material or interior decor!
