This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with brave hawk and ivy motif, which is thickly embroidered.
Textile is sleek 'Shusu'(satin) silk, and it has soft to the touch.
Length is 336cm(11'0") , rather short for Nagoya Obi.
*Background color may seem uneven on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code*
Maegara is only on one side, and when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
Fray A on one side of Maegara will not show when tied.
Discoloration on Otaiko pattern is light and unnoticeable.
It has some other flaws, such as added fabric and folding lines, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it still is a very charming item to wear!
