This is a casual Tsume-Tsuzure Nagoya obi
with a design of camellia on picture plate, which is woven.
Its soft-colored design looks lovely on the pale base color.
Textile is thick silk and has rather crisp touch.
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed.
It has couple of flaws such as slight discoloration of otaiko part, although they are not disturbing for tying.
Please check detail photos.
This elegant piece will be versatile and will come in use both on formal and casual occasions!
