This is a vintage tsumugi
opened nagoya obi
with alluring lilies boldly woven.
Its color scheme of glossy black and dazzling gold against the rich magenta pink is so catchy and appealing.
It is not sewn(not completed as an obi).
The seal on the tesaki backside tells us this piece was made during the war period, and that might be the reason the flat threads making the pattern look rather cheapish.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend, and it's a little stiff.
The flat threads are frayed in places.
Also, discoloration can be seen on this item.
It seems, if tied, the pink of its base might be transferred onto the kimono.
So this piece is not wearable.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It may be wonderful interior decor!
