This vintage black shusu Nagoya obi
has fancy embroidery of a parrot and roses.
Silky embroidery yarns make the brilliant bird and flowers stand out more.
The narrow belt part has embroidery on both sides for maegara (front pattern).
Textile is sleek shusu woven with jinken (rayon) threads.
It has soft and smooth touch.
As the figure shows, it has some flaws including frays and tears.
The tear is in the maegara hem(upper side), but it is just besides the seam, and it is not seen from front. (The third flaw photo)
However, they are not so serious as to make it unwearable.
It would make perfect matches with a vintage kimonos.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
