The embroidered design has three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Silver foil threads woven on the background are gorgeously shining.

'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
The otaiko(square bow) is frayed and has slight thread scuff on the embroidery threads, but not noticeable.
A stitch of embroidery is coming loose and will spread if touched strongly.(indicated as snag)
It ahs many stains on 'Maegara' (front patterned part) and noticeable.
It has some other flaws such as prominent folding lines.
