This is a vibrant vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of 'kikko'(tortoise shell) 'Hana-bishi' (flower diamond) and 'aoi'(hollyhock), which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the design are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 10'3"5/8(314cm).
*The real base color is relatively more reddish than the photos.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, slight patinas can be seen on otaiko and maegara(front patterned part).
There are some more snags on otaiko than the figure shown, but are tiny so not prominent.
There is a stain(A) on maegara.
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), it will be hidden.
There are other flaws such as discoloration(4th flaw photo).
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
