How beautiful this Nagoya obi is!
This is a masterpiece designed and dyed by Tokio Hata, one of the most prominent Kaga Yuzen dyers and a Human National Treasure of Japan.
In the otaiko (square bow) area and the maegara (front pattern) area, dainty cotton rose is dyed with delicate touch.
Worm-eaten holes characteristic of Kaga Yuzen designs can be seen on the leaves.
Over the tare end, there is a stamp of the dyer.
Textile is chirimen (crepe) silk, and it's soft and has textured touch.
As the photos and the sheet show, the ivory base seems to be discolored.
Also, a couple of orangish stains can be seen in the otaiko (square bow) pattern.
Still, its overall condition is very good.
It's a great chance to have such a beautiful example of Japanese dyeing technique!
