This is a unique Shioze Nagoya obi
with a part of castle design on the vibrant base, which is dyed.
It is a chic piece with batik technique-like design.
It has gold glazing arranged on the design.
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.
Not shown on the sheet and in the photos, it has some white tiny stains close to 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) and the belt part of the wrong side.
The stains are inconspicuous when tied.
It has discoloration along the folding lines close to 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), and when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), they are disturbing.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right (Rotate obi clockwise), the discoloration can be hidden.
Although there are such flaws, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy its vibrant design.
