This is an elegant Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of 'ajisai'(hydrangea), which is dyed.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
The design of otaiko won't appear so much when tied.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, there are some tiny stains lower otaiko, but may be hidden when tied.
The dyestuffs on otaiko are not so prominent when tied.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
