This is a Tsume tsuzure Nagoya obi
with Japanese garden pattern, which is woven.
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
Textile is exquisite thick and stiff silk.
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
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise).
There is a faint stain on 'otaiko'(square bow).
(refer to the 1st flaws photo)
There are noticeable folding lines.
There are some other flaws such as small snags and stains.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Although it has some flaws, it is still in wearable condition.
Enjoy wearing the tasteful design.
