This is a chic Nagoya obi
with adorable dog, 'temari' (ball for girls) and spool pattern, which is embroidered.
Textile is exquisite soft and glossy silk with damask effect(rinzu) of lattice 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).
It is relatively short.(11'1"/337cm)
There is a 0.3"(1cm) long tear on 'otaiko'(square bow).
(refer to the 2nd flaws photo)
There are slight patinas and discoloration on embroidered pattern.(refer to the 3rd flaws photo)
There are some other flaws such as frays, loose stitches and folding lines.

Unfortunately, it may no longer in wearable condition due to those flaws.
However, it is still lovely design which we would like you to enjoy.
