This is a tsume-tsuzure Nagoya obi
with a design of water birds on stream, which is elaborately woven.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed. It has special kind of crisp and rather thick touch of Tsume tsuzure
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 will show.
It has folding lines, stains on maegara( front patterned part) and snags.
Please check detail photos.
It has couple of flaws, but there is not very serious damage for wearing.
Enjoy its enchanting fashion!
