This is a elegant Nagoya obi
with ginkgo on 'jigami'(paper cut of shape of fan or umbrella etc.) pattern, which is dyed.
The vibrant yellow pattern emerges out against the chic blue background.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) changes depending on the way of wrapping.
It has slight discoloration overall and slight wrinkles on upper otaiko(square bow).
It has smudges on the tare corners and relatively prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Although it has some tiny flaws as mentioned, it still is a very graceful item to wear!
*Though the photo shows uneven color dyes by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
