This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with 'Kusudama'(flowers ball) and butterfly pattern, which is dyed.
Gold glazing is partially added on the outline of the pattern.
Textile is chirimen (crepe) silk and has soft and slightly textured touch.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the tare part.
It has slight discoloration and tiny patinas on such as the tare end and otaiko(square bow).
The patinas on the tare end will appear when tied, and a little bothering with its pale colored background.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws, it is in very good condition overall.
Enjoy wearing the elegant design.
