This is a tasteful Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of rose, which is dyed with 'sumie' (ink brush painting) technique.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature on tare. (It will appear when tied a little.)
There are some tiny stains on maegara(front patterned part).
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), they will be hidden.
The stains upper otaiko can be hidden when tied. (2nd flaw photo)
Discoloration and folding lines are not so prominent.(1st and 3rd flaw photo)
Please check detail photos.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
