This is a vintage summer Ro Nagoya obi
with royal cart and 'Nadeshiko'(dianthus) design, which is embroidered.
The embroidered motifs have three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Textile is silk and jinken(rayon) blend, and has soft and 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.
Its length is rather short. 324cm(10'6")
Although it has many peeling spots of silver foil threads caused by fray, they are not so noticeable.
Discoloration due to its age can be seen overall, especially ones on the blue parts of the design are noticeable.
It has some other flaws such as patinas on the designed parts.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its retro design of vintage!
