This is a Shibori (tie-dye) Nagoya obi
with 'shippou-tsunagi'(jointed four circles) pattern, which is dyed.
Its simple colors will brighten up elegant pattern.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft and comfortable touch.
It is slightly discolored overall.
Tare corners are frayed.
It has dyestuffs on one side of maegara( front patterned part). (The dyestuffs seem to have been dyed on the pattern. It might not to have been dyed well.)
However, if you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), they can be hidden.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its fine Shibori design!
