This is a vibrant Shioze Nagoya obi
with "Karabana"(imaginary Chinese flower) in circle design , which is dyed.
It has gold glazing partially arranged on the design.
Koma embroidery work is also arranged on the pattern of 'otaiko'(square bow).
Textile is Shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of Shioze silk.
*The real base color is rather bluish than it is in the photos.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.
Not shown on the sheet and in the photos, it has slight folding lines on the triangle part of 'otaiko'(square bow) and the blank part of the belt part.
It has red dyestuffs on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), but they are inconspicuous.
It has frays at the corners of 'tare'(wide end) end and 'tesaki'(the end of folded, narrow belt).
There are some other flaws such as frays on the base (the 2nd flaw photo).
The fabric of 'tare'(wide end) has been slightly shrunk and the back fabric of 'tare'(wide end) end has been pulled out.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy its design casually.
