This is a Sioze Nagoya obi
with adorable children who are playing with 'temari' (ball for girls) motifs, which is dyed and embroidered.
The fine embroidery works which were done a stitch by a stitch are three dimensional and beautifully glossy.
There are some golden glaze on it.
Textile is sioze silk with its characteristic soft and smooth texture.
*The real color of it is a little bit more reddish than photo.
There are some flaws such as folding lines, frays on the corners.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
The fabric of the 'tare'(wide end) might be shrunk.
So that, a little bit of the fabric of the wrong side was pulled and came out to the right side.
It is still in good condition.
Enjoy wearing the lovely design.
