This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of unique color bird on 'sakura'(cherry blossom) branch, which is embroidered.
The vibrant design emerges out dynamically.
Textile is glossy Shusu silk and has soft and smooth 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.
Several stains can be seen on Otaiko design, although they are not indicated on the figure.
However, they are slight and not so bothering.
Discoloration by ages can be seen overall, and it will be a little disturbing.
There are several other flaws such as frays of Tare corners.
Please check detail photos.
It has flaws, but we hope you enjoy its retro and cute design of vintage!
