This is an elegant Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of butterfly, which is dyed.
Its realistic design is so eye-catching!
May be, real butterfly wings are added on the design partly.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature lower otaiko.
There is a flaw by fray on otaiko but is quite slight so not prominent.(A)
It has stains on maegara(front patterned part).(2nd flaw photo)
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), they will be hidden.
It also has a slight liner stain on the wrong side of maegara, but is not so noticeable.
There are other flaws such as slight discoloration.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its tasteful fashion!
