This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of 'sakura'(cherry blossom) and unique masks, which is finely embroidered with glossy threads on the glossy purple Shusu background.
Textile is glossy silk.
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
Slight patinas can be seen on embroidered parts.
Also, it has other flaws such as discoloration on the background, due to its old age.
However, we hope you enjoy tying this Obi!
Please enjoy its unique design!
