This is an eye-catching vintage summer ro Nagoya obi
with an idyllic scenery design such as wind mill, trail and boat, which is embroidered.
The embroidered design has three-dimension glossy beauty.
Textile is transparent silk and has rather crisp touch.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), designed side of Maegara will show.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.
It is discolored slightly overall and has patinas.
There is a hole at about 1'2"3/8(36.5cm) from tare end, but may be hidden when tied.
However, other holes will appear when tied.
Rough sketch remains on the design.(indicated as dyestuff)
There are other flaws such as prominent folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
