This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of houou(phoenix) and 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) on circle, which is dyed.
Raden (design in mother-of-pearl inlay) is added on the design and fascinatingly shine by the angle of light.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has stains on the otaiko and blank part, but can be hidden when tied. (3rd and 4th flaw photo)
There are other flaws such as frays and folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
