This is an eye-catching green Nagoya obi
with gorgeous ' karabana'(imaginary flower in China) pattern, which is woven with Tsume tsuzure
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed.
It has special kind of comfortable and stiff touch of Tsume tsuzure
It has some flaws as photos show.
(A) is the small holes, where the 'hatsurikou'( Tsume tsuzure
weaving feature) becomes rather big, but it is not serious damage.
(B) seems to be uneven spot of weaving and slight discoloration.
It has some other flaws as photos show, but as a whole it is in very good condition and can be tied.
