This is a Nagoya obi
with 'Kikyou'(Japanese bellflower) and "Nanten" (nandina) on mountain motif, which is embroidered.
The fine embroidery works which were done a stitch by a stitch are three dimensional and beautifully glossy.
The vivid pattern glows very well on the tranquil color background.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
It is relatively short.(10'11"/332cm)
The mold(A) could be hidden when you tie it.
(It was indicated as a stain on the sheet.)
The stain on 'otaiko'(square bow) will be seen when you tie it. However, it is not that noticeable.
There are some other flaws such as very slight discoloration.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Although it has such flaws, it is still in wearable condition.
Enjoy wearing the elegant design.
