This is a tasteful Shioze Nagoya obi
with an adorable kids design, which is dyed.
Gold glazing is added on the design.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
There are molds on tare, lower otaiko and so on, and will appear when tied.
There are frayed parts on tare and upper otaiko.
Brownish patinas can be seen on white parts of the design, and bothering a little.
It has a snags on maegara(front patterned part).
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), it will be hidden.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its lovely design!
