This is an opened Nagoya obi
with 'Karabana' (imaginary flower in China) and paisley pattern, which is dyed.
Its colorful hue is so fashionable.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has no folding lines and seems to be untied.
Though it has tiny stains on the tare, on upper otaiko(square bow) and near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part), they are not noticeable if tied neatly.
(When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), stains on 'Maegara' (front patterned part) will be hidden.)
It has slight discoloration throughout the edges, on the tesaki and on the wrong side.
It also has a snag on the wrong side.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy this graceful piece.
