This is a vibrant Nagoya obi
with a design of large butterfly circle on cloud, which is woven.
Silver glazing and gold foil threads woven on the design are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Although not shown on the photo, some foiled threads on right edge of otaiko are peeled off by fray about 2"3/4(7cm), and rather prominent.
The frayed parts on left side of otaiko, tare end and both sides of lower maegara(front patterned part) are bothering a little by angle of the light.(B)
There are some slight stains upper otaiko and might be hidden or not when tied.
There are other flaws such as folding lines and slight discoloration.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its elegant design!
