This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of butterfly and autumn grasses such as 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'hagi'(Japanese bush clover), which is woven on the vibrant base color.
Gold foil threads woven on the background and design are gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Large snag can be seen on one side of maegara( front patterned part). If you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), the snag is on outside. Therefore, please start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise).
Snags of the other side are relatively small.
Also, there are folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
*It has old smell, because of the long storage.
