This is a chic vintage summer sha Nagoya obi
with lily and embroidered bees, which is dye.
It is a beautiful piece which has lily design on the lining and bee design on the base, and they are transparent through to the right side.
Textile is transparent silk and has a soft touch.
It has the design on the both side of 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
'Maegara' (front patterned part) changes depending on the way or wrapping.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), bee design at Maegara will show.
It is rather short,10'7"(325cm).
It has some frays on the edges and some of the parts loose the warp threads.

Though there are some such flaws above, it is still wearable enough in a very good condition.
Enjoy its chic design in summer.
