This is a charming vintage summer Ro Nagoya obi
with a 'azami' (thistle) motif, which is embroidered.
The embroidered motif has three-dimension glossy beauty.
Textile is transparent silk and has soft touch.
The obi has one side designed at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), designed side of Maegara will show.
Its length is rather short, 11'1/2(336.5cm).
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has discoloration overall by ages.
The stains(A) on maegara(front patterned part) will appear when tied and disturbing.
The threads on embroidered part of otaiko are missing by fray partly.(fray C)
There are other flaws such as holes on otaiko and maegara.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
