This is a graceful Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of camellia and 'kikyou'(balloon flower)-like flower, which is dyed.
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 upper tare.
It is discolored overall and has patinas on otaiko.
The stain(A) lower otaiko may be hidden when tied.
The stains(B) on maegara(front patterned part) are slight so not prominent.
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its elegant design!
