This shusu vintage Nagoya obi
has crane and flower circle pattern which is embroidered.
Textile is soft and glossy black shusu jinken(rayon).
Lining is jinken(rayon).
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is only on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
Frays are prominent on the wrong side of otaiko (photo 3).
There are some other flaws such as discolorations on embroidery threads.
Please check photos and a figure for details.
It's still enjoyable as a vintage kimono for sure.
Please enjoy this zestful design full of retro flavor!
