This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with large tropical leaves pattern, which is embroidered.
The delicate colors of the leaves were embroidered with thick threads.
Textile is exquisite soft and glossy silk with damask effect(rinzu) of Sayagata pattern.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise).
There are loose stitches on the left edge of 'otaiko'(square bow) for 8"(20cm).(refer to the 2nd flaws photo)
Although there is no photo of it, there is a tear for 1"(3cm) at 'taresaki'(end of wide part).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Unfortunately, it may no longer in wearable condition due to those flaws.
However, it is still charming design which we would like you to enjoy.
