This is alluring Nagoya obi
with charming various motifs - fan, mandarin duck, and 'botan' (peony) which are woven in glittering background.
This is woven amazingly 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 medium touch of Tsume tsuzure
It has rather prominent folding lines and slight stain (photo B) in between 'otaiko'(square bow) and maegara (front patterned part). It also has a slight stain on the tare end.
We don't check in the figure, but maegara part is slightly smudged.
It can't be tied at formal occasions, but it must be excellent handicraft material or interior decor!
