This is a zestful sioze Nagoya obi
with 'katawaguruma'(wheels of royal cart, which are stored in the stream to avoid drying) pattern, which is embroidered colorfully and finely in black background.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of sioze silk.
Small stains(or patinas) can be seen on its pattern as the figure shown. It's discolored and on maegara (front patterned part) and tesaki are rather outstanding. It has a bit of well-used feeling but it's still in very good condition overall. Please refer the photos and sheet for other flaws and details.
