This is a chic light blue Nagoya obi
with a mysterious motif, which is embroidered with ribbon embroidery -style technique.
Its motif looks black napa!
What a surreal design it is!
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft, but textured touch.
There is no maegara( front patterned part) on both sides.
Rather prominent discolorations can be seen on its base color, because of its old age. (the 3rd flaw photo)
There are several other flaws.
Please check detail photos.
It has a worn-out feeling overall, but it really has a high-impact and intriguing design!
Enjoy this piece on vintage kimonos!
