This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with design of large green maple, which is woven with cut velvet technique.
Green of maples and red of its ground make a great contrast.
It is also embroidered with silver and gold threads.
Textile is exquisite sleek shusu and has glossy touch.
Although it has slight frays on both tare and tesaki part, there are no flaws other than them.
It is in very good condition overall.
Please check photos and a figure for details.
Enjoy this piece coordinating with vintage kimonos!
