This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of camellia, 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'ume'(Japanese plum) on fans, which is finely embroidered with glossy threads.
Textile is glossy shusu and has soft touch.
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.
Several snags can be seen on embroidered parts such as tare and otaiko.
However, they are small and seem not to be so prominent.
Edges and background are frayed.
There are several other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Please enjoy its beautiful embroidered design!
