This is a lovely Sioze Nagoya obi
with a design of flower on 'ichimatsu' (checkerboard) pattern, which is embroidered.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has a soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
The rather thick lining is added inside.
Overall, it has discoloration, not only on the pattern.
The molds on the pattern and patinas (no photos and sheet) are tiny and inconspicuous when tied.
There are also some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Although it has such flaws above, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy its lovely design.
