This shusu vintage Nagoya obi
has Japanese chin and temari (ball for girls) motifs, which are elaborately embroidered.
Textile is silk and jinken(rayon) blend, and it's soft and glossy.
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), 'Maegara' (front patterned part) will show.
It has slight discolorations on the white embroidered parts, but it is in very good conditions for its old age.
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws such as snags.
We would like you to enjoy the lovely design of its old age.
