This is a chic opened Tsumugi Nagoya obi
with decorative design of 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China), which is dyed and embroidered with Soshu embroidery work.
Drawn work (one of the techniques of removing thread partly to make a ground textile seen through) is added on the design fashionably.
Textile is Tsumugi
silk and has soft and nubby touch.
It has prominent stains on the wrong side, but can be hidden when tied.
It also has slight folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
