This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with an adorable kids design, which is dyed on the deep background.
Gold glazing is used.
Textile is Shioze silk, and it has soft and smooth touch.
White molds can be seen overall and especially lots of molds can be seen on blank part of wrong side of bodice, although they are not indicated on the figure. (However, they can be hidden when tied.)
Small patinas can be seen on Otaiko design, but they are not prominent when tied.
Stain of Otaiko is slight and not prominent.
There are a couple of other flaws.
Please check detail photos.
Also, 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.
However, we hope you enjoy tying this charming piece!
*The background color may look uneven in the photos but actual color is one tone just as HTML color.
