This is an alluring Tsume tsuzure Nagoya obi
with a design of beautiful scenery, which is 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 comfortable and thick touch of Tsume tsuzure
Maegara(front patterned part) is in one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
Stains on the lower otaiko(square bow) are prominent(2nd photo).
Though those are not the flaws, some of the colored threads ends on the patterns come up to the surface prominently(1st photo).
Folding lines prominently remain as well.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It's still tie-able enough with very good condition if you don't mind those small flaws.
This piece will be versatile and will come in use both on formal and casual occasions!
