This sioze Nagoya obi
has traditional fan design, which is dyed on the tender colored background.
It has four seasons flowers such as ume (cherry blossom), kiku (chrysanthemum), kaede (maple leaf) and kanoko dots motifs are dyed inside fan.
Several parts are added with gold foils, and they shine glamorously.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of sioze silk.
Folding lines remain, and slight discolorations can be seen on the background as shown on the figure.
There are two dyestuffs on one side of 'maegara' (front patterned part), but only one dyestuff is shown in the figure, so sorry.
The lower part of dyestuff, it seems to be because of uneven spot of weaving.
However, if you use the other side of maegara, it still can be tied! (If you tie it with clockwise, stained side will be inside.)
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws such as stains.
We would like you to enjoy its traditional design for your kimono fashion.
