Textile is exquisite thick silk and has smooth touch.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed.

It also has prominent folding lines and smudges around the lines.
It has some other flaws such as stains on otaiko(square bow) (B).
