This Nagoya obi
has lovely abstract design, which is roughly woven.
Textile is exquisite silk, and it's relatively stiff and nubby.
It is sewn as matsuba-shitate, and belt part is folded tightly.
Folding lines remain as shown on the figure, and there are slight patinas on the white patterned parts of 'otaiko' (square bow part). (refer the 1st flaws photo)
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws such as discolorations.
This item still can be tied if those small flaws do not bother you.
We would like you to enjoy this lovely design for your elegant kimono fashion.
