This is an elegant Sioze Nagoya obi
by Atsushi Ogura.
It has Tsujigahana
design, which is dyed on the light colored background.
The impressive design which is dyed with shibori(tie-dyed) technique, and line drawing with sumi ink are beautiful.
Textile is sioze silk with its characteristic soft and smooth texture.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature.
It has a tiny black stain on the Tare end, and it may be disturbing when tied.
It has some glosses by fray on the Tare end.
Slight folding lines can be seen on the triangle part and near Tesaki, but they are not disturbing.
Stains near Otaiko(square bow) are slight and tiny, so not noticeable.
It has other flaws such as rather prominent discoloration and slight smudges on the edges in full length.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
The fabric of Tare end is slightly stretched.
We would like you to enjoy this charming obi with your daily kimono.
