This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of butterfly, weeping 'sakura'(cherry blossom), 'kasumi'(mist) and kanzesui'(water stream), which is woven on the vibrant background.
Gold foil threads are gracefully shining on the design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) changes depending on the way of wrapping.
Slight discoloration can be seen on white color parts of Otaiko.
It has tiny snags (not so prominent).
Also, there is a sight folding line.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
