This is a Tsume tsuzure Nagoya obi with a large leaf of lotus or Monstera deliciosa?, which is woven with Tsume tsuzure technique.
Gold foil threads included in the pattern twinkle gently.
Textile is silk, and it has soft to the touch.
One threads by one threads, it was woven elaborately with nails, and it had to be taken incredibly long time to be completed. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.
Maegara is only one side. When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.

*Background color may seem uneven on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code*
Actual color is more reddish than shown on photos.

It has prominent folding lines and they are smudged along(sorry no photos), but not disturbing when tied.
There are small snags on the wrong side of Otaiko pattern and corners of Tare end are slightly frayed.
Please see photos for details.

If you do not mind the small flaws mentioned, it can continue to be worn.

*Approx background color - HTML code (C97571)
