This is a Sioze Nagoya obi
with an exotic 'Housouge'(imaginary Chinese flower) on 'Dokyo'(copper mirror) motifs, which are dyed.
Rather three-dimensional gold glazing is added on the outline of the motifs.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of sioze silk.
The actual background color is relatively deeper one than the photos.
It has discoloration not only on the wrong side of tare but also overall.(refer to the 4th flaws photo)
The base becomes shiny by fray in places, but not so bothering when tied.(refer to the 2nd flaws photo)
It has some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
However, we hope you enjoy tying this piece as a daily wear!
*Though the photo shows uneven color dyes by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
