This is a black satin Nagoya obi
with "Matsu"(pine tree) and scroll book motifs, which is embroidered.
The gold embroidered threads elegantly shine on the black background.
Textile is sleek and glossy black satin silk.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise).
It is relatively short.(10'6"/319cm)
There is slight discoloration throughout.
There are small stains on the 'otaiko'(square bow) and other areas.
There are frays on the corners.
There is a snag on the narrow belt part.

Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
