This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with gold 'Sarasa'(chintz) pattern on 'Shikishi'(square paper) motifs, which are dyed.
The graceful pattern emerges out against the chic background.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
*Though the photo shows uneven colors by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has folding lines on the triangle part and on the plain part of belt part, and many tiny stains near 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
The stains near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part) are not noticeable.
It's still wearable enough in very good condition.
Please enjoy this graceful and elegant design.
