This is a vintage Nagoya obi
in bright orange.
Lovely 'hana-maru' (flower circle) motifs of such as skaura (cherry blossoms) and peonies are neatly embroidered.
Textile is sleek shusu silk, and it's soft and very smooth.
It rather looks aged with some flaws such as smudges.
The embroidery became a little fluffy and smudged.
Also, blackish stains can be seen above the otaiko (square bow) pattern.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
