This is a Sioze Nagoya obi
with elegant autumnal flowers on 'zigami'(paper cut of shape of fan or umbrella etc.) pattern, which is dyed.
Gold accent is added for extra elegant look.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has soft touch.
There are patinas and discoloration on both Otaiko and Maegara patterns, however, they are light and should not stand out.
It has some other flaws, such as light stains on Otaiko pattern, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.
Faint smudge and folding lines are seen on Tare and Tesaki ends. (sorry no photos)
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it still is a very charming item to wear!
