This is an exotic Shioze Nagoya obi
with 'housouge'(large karabana flower), which is dyed.
Gold glazing and 'kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) are added on the design partly.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has some blackish stains on otaiko.
There are molds on both sides of maegara(front patterned part).
Slight discoloration can be seen in places.
There are other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, gold glazing on otaiko is peeled off partly.
It seems to be not suitable to wear due to the flaws.
However, we hope you enjoy its elegant design!
