This is a bolt for summer Nagoya obi
with a bird motif, which is dyed and embroidered on the elegant aurora background.
Aurora foils are woven on otaiko paterned part and maegara( front patterned part). They are elegantly shining.
Textile is transparent ro silk and has rather crisp touch.
Most parts are solid. Only otaiko and maegara parts have designs.
It has several flaws, as figure shows.
Please check detail photos.
It must be an amazing handicraft material!
