This cute vintage Nagoya obi
has 'karabana'(imaginary Chinese flower) in ichimatsu (checkerboard) pattern, which is woven.
Textile is transparent ro silk, and it is soft and smooth.
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied, so please start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to left (Rotate obi clockwise), then 'Maegara' (front patterned part) will show.
It has some flaws such as slight stains.
However, they are not prominent.
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws.
Though, it has relatively used feeling, we would like you to enjoy this piece by vintage lovers.
