This is a charming Shioze Nagoya obi
with 'asanoha'(hemp leaf) and kanoko dot pattern, which is dyed on the vibrant background.
Textile is Shioze silk, and it has a soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of Shioze silk.
The stain on otaiko(square bow) will appear when tied, but it is slight and not so noticeable.(refer to the 3rd flaws photo)
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), frays on Maegara will be hidden.
It has some other flaws such as discoloration overall (refer to the 7th flaws photo) frays on both corners and throughout the edges.
The fabric of the tare seems to be shrunk and the wrong side appears a little.
Please enjoy its design for everyday fashion.
