This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of dandelion and flying butterflies, which is finely embroidered.
Textile is rather thick Tsuzure silk and has rather crisp touch.
Its length is rather short. 10'10"(331.5cm)
Maegara( front patterned part) is in both sides.
If you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), dandelion design will show.
Lots of tiny patinas can be seen overall, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
(A) is smudge and it can be seen such as Otaiko and Maegara except the figure shown.
Lots of stains can be seen on Otaiko and they are prominent when tied.
Threads of the design are missing by frays.
There are several other flaws such as tears.
Please check detail photos.
This item can't be tied, but we hope you enjoy its adorable design of vintage!
