This is an impressive vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of powerful hawk, which is embroidered.
The embroidered design has three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Textile is glossy 'Shusu'(satin) silk and has rather crisp touch.
Its length is rather short, 11'1"1/8(338cm).
The obi has one side patterned at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
Lots of whitish stains can be seen on maegara(front patterned part) and prominent when tied.
Discoloration can be seen on otaiko and maegara.(3rd flaw photo)
Although not shown on the photo and figure, patinas can be seen on otaiko and maegara, and bothering a little when tied.
There are other flaws such as tears(4th flaw photo) and folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
