This is a tasteful Nagoya obi
with a design of 'fukiyose'(various leaves gathered by wind), which is embroidered on the ombre dyed background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Although not shown on the photo, there is a seam of fabric on the wrong side at about 6"1/4(16cm) from the tare end.
Some tiny whitish molds can be seen on the wrong side.
Also, the fabric of the 'tare'(wide end) might be shrunk.
So that, a little bit of the fabric of the wrong side was pulled and came out to the right side.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion as a daily wear!
