This is a Nagoya obi
with an elegant flower design of 'Tsuzumi'(Japanese hand drum), butterfly, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'Botan'(peony), which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the motif shine gracefully.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The stitches are coming loose on the tare.
The snags on otaiko(square bow) area and 'Maegara' (front patterned part) are not so bothering when tied.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It needs to be repaired for the stitch.
Please enjoy its elegant design.
