This is a tsume tsuzue Nagoya obi
with Gion floats pattern, which is woven with Tsume tsuzure
Gold foil threads included in the pattern twinkle gently.
Textile is thick silk, and it has soft to the touch.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure
Red stains, described as dyestuff stains, are on one side of Maegara(Kansai maki side), but they are light and not disturbing.
Please see photos for details.
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it still is a very charming item to wear!
