This is a charming vintage Nagoya obi
with traditional design of butterfly from Japanese ancient court music instruments, which is elegantly embroidered on an eye-catching vibrant ground.
Its vibrant design is full of retro flavor.
Textile is exquisite sleek shusu silk and has glossy touch.
Though there are stains on upper part of otaiko, they are not so prominent due to its deep ground color.
A fray (A) near tare part is rather prominent.
There are some other flaws including slight snags, smudges and frays as well.
It also has holes on the belt part too.
Please check photos and a figure for details.
Although it does have some flaws, it will be still wearable!
Enjoy retro style coordinating with vintage kimonos!
