This is a tasteful vintage summer Ro Nagoya obi
with a design of 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), which is embroidered.
The embroidered design has three-dimension glossy beauty.
Textile is transparent silk and has soft touch.
The obi has one side designed at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), designed side of Maegara will show.
It has discoloration and patinas overall by ages.(4th flaw photo)
The stains(B) on maegara(front patterned part) are large but can be hidden when tied.
Although not shown on the photo, there is a stain like stain(C) on the wrong side of maegara, and will appear when tied so disturbing. (It is smaller than stain(C).)
There are other flaws such as a stain(A) on otaiko and folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
