This is a graceful Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of tulip-like flower, which is dyed on grayish sedate colored background.
Gold glazing is added on the design and elegantly shining.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.
It is discolored slightly overall.
There are smudges on tare end, 'tesaki'(narrow end) and throughout both edges.
It has a slight stain on maegara(front patterned part).(A)
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), it will be hidden.
Besides, it has rather prominent folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
