This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a tsujigahana-style flower design, which is dyed on the soft color 'somewake'(dyed with separate design) background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft, but nubby touch.
It has tears, because of frays on both tare corners.
Both sides of maegara( front patterned part) have stains.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), relatively in very good side will be outside.
There are other flaws such as rather prominent discolorations on its base color, because of its old age.
Please check detail photos.
Enjoy its elegant dyed design!
