This is a polished 'hige-tsumugi' - weft yarns come out like 'hige'(beard) nagoya obi.
It has a Chinese scenery design, which is dyed with ink painting-style.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft, but textured touch.
There is a name of the dyer bottom on otaiko part.
It has a rather prominent stain on one side of maegara( front patterned part). (If it is tied clockwise, the stain will come outside.)
There are slight discolorations of patinas on its background, but they are not so disturbing for wearing.
It has several other flaws.
Please check detail photos.
Enjoy its tasteful fashion on Tsumugi
