This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with vibrant crane circle and dragon on 'shippou-tsunagi'(jointed four circles) pattern, which are woven.
Foil threads are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Tiny snags can be seen overall.
Also, there are snags around Maegara( front patterned part). (A)
Tare corners are frayed.
Also, it has slight folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Fabric becomes weak by old ages and we can't recommend you to tie.
However, please enjoy its dynamic design!
