This is an impressive Hige-Tsumugi Nagoya obi
with 'Sazanka' (Camellia) design, which is dyed.
The yarns are coming out like 'hige'(beards).
Its subtle hue and drawing touch is so attractive!
Textile is exquisite Tsumugi
silk and has soft touch with rustic atmosphere.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the tare.
It has slight discoloration all over and there is one small patina on front part on the 'Maegara' (front patterned part). The part will not show when the obi is wrapped around clockwise.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws, the obi is still very lovely and can be worn.
