This is a beautiful Shioze Nagoya obi
with swirl pattern, which is woven with 'kinsai'(gold glazing) on vibrant base.
The embroidery work is arranged on some parts of the pattern.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has a soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
The stains near 'Maegara' (front patterned part) would be hidden when tied well.(the 5th flaw photo)
The warp yarn on the edge of 'otaiko'(square bow) is a little missing by fray, but not rather noticeable when tied.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines.(the 4th flaw photo)
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy its vibrant design for everyday fashion.
