This is a charming Shioze Nagoya obi
with 'sakura'(cherry blossom) on mountain pattern, 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 sign of the designer's signature upper tare.
There are some holes lower otaiko and maegara(front patterned part), but are not so prominent.
The stain on otaiko is removed mostly.
There are patinas on maegara.
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), they will be hidden.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
