This is a graceful pre-tied Sioze Nagoya obi
separated into 2 parts with a design of 'sakura'(cherry blossom), which is dyed.
Gold glazing is added on the design.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
Button and rubber band are attached on the belt part for easy wearing, and replace easily to adjust own size.
This item is re-tailored by individuals and it is machine-sewn roughly.
Discoloration on otaiko is rather prominent and bothering a little.
There are other flaws such as stains but will not appear when tied.
Discoloration also can be seen on maegara(front patterned part) but not so noticeable.
Please check detail photos.
*It has a bit of old smell.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion as a daily wear!
