This is a Sioze Nagoya obi
with a design of 'zen'(goodness) or 'yume'(dream) -like Kanji letter, which is dyed.
Embroidery work adds to the part of the design.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has soft touch.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the right front panel.
Dyestuffs and snags on the Otaiko(square bow) are tiny so not noticeable.
There are two discolorations along the creases on the wrong side of 'Maegara'(front patterned part), and they will be disturbing when tied.
Discoloration on the right edge of Otaiko(square bow) and Tare end are rather prominent, so they will be disturbing a little.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
We would like you to enjoy this attractive obi with your daily kimono.
