This is a fashionable Shioze Nagoya obi
with dripped design, which is dyed.
Its green and pink ombre dyed design is impressive!
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature wrong side of tare.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has liner blackish smudges at about 2"3/8(6cm) from tare end, and bothering a little when tied.
The stain on tare end and the stain(A) will appear when tied and disturbing.
Slight discoloration and patinas can be seen upper otaiko.
There are blackish stains(B) and discoloration on right side of maegara(front patterned part), and tiny patinas on wrong side of maegara.
The flaws on both sides of maegara are bothering a little.
There are other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its attractive design!
