with 'Nadeshiko'(dianthus), lily and iris on the 'shikishi' (square paper), which is embroidered.
Textile is transparent silk and has a soft touch.
The 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara would show.
There are more spots where are missing foils then those spots on the sheet.

Overall, it has discoloration on the designs mainly.
