This is an elegant yet stylish Sioze Nagoya obi
with a design of vibrant rose on 'kiredori'(overlapping fabric scraps), which is dyed.
Textile is shioze silk with its characteristic soft and smooth texture.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature on tare.
It has some more stains on otaiko than the figure shown.
They can be hidden when tied mostly but some stains will appear.
It has discoloration and patinas overall, especially, on tare one is prominent but can be hidden when tied.
There are other flaws such as rather noticeable folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Also, the fabric of the 'tare'(wide end) might be shrunk.
So that, a little bit of the fabric of the wrong side was pulled and came out to the right side.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its attractive fashion!
