This is a graceful tsume-tsuzure Nagoya obi
with mountain scenery design, which is woven.
It is sewn as matsuba-shitate, and belt part is folded tightly.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed. It has special kind of relatively stiff touch of Tsume tsuzure
Other than discolorations, relatively prominent patinas are seen on maegara. (refer the 4th flaws photo)
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws such as stains.
However, it is not used, and as a whole it is in very good condition.
We think it can be tied.
