This is a graceful Nagoya obi
with flower 'kikko' (tortoise shell) and phoenix
design, which is woven.
Colorful hue and gold foil threads twinkle gently.
Textile is exquisite glossy silk and has soft touch.
The snags on otaiko(square bow) and 'Maegara' (front patterned part) are tiny.
It also has slight folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though not indicated, it has a few tiny stains below the otaiko(square bow) , on the wrong side and on one side of 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), the stains on Maegara will be hidden.
The one below the otaiko(square bow) will be hidden somehow.
If you do not mind the small flaws mentioned, it can continue to be worn.
Please enjoy this attractive design.
