This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of flower basket of lily, 'Nadeshiko'(dianthus) and 'Ominaeshi'(patrinia), which is embroidered.
The embroidered motifs have three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend, and has light touch.
The 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
Thick and stiff lining is added inside.
Its length is rather short. 334.5cm(10'9")
Stains on Otaiko(square bow) are small, so not disturbing when tied.
Although discoloration can be seen on the base and designed parts, they are not disturbing.
It has frays on the corners of Tare and Tesaki ends and some parts of its base.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its retro and cute vintage design!
