This is a fascinating vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of glamorous goldfish on stream, which is woven.
The vibrant design emerges out against the black background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Discoloration can be seen overall.(3rd flaw photo)
Lots of threads on otaiko, tare end and throughout both edges are missing by fray, and bothering.(4th flaw photo)
It has a stain on maegara(front patterned part).
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), they will be hidden.
There are other flaws such as seams(6th flaw photo) and folding lines(7th flaw photo).
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
