This is an eye-catching vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of dragon, karajishi(lion) and cloud, which is embroidered.
These unique faces of dragon and lion are so cute!
The fine embroidery work has three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Textile is glossy shusu(satin) silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 10'5"1/4(318cm).
The obi has one side designed at the front part when it is tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), designed side of maegara will show.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has folding lines.
There is a seam of fabric on the wrong side at about 2'1"1/4(64cm) from the tare end.
There are some more frays on otaiko than the figure shown.
Also, there are frayed parts throughout both edges.

Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the fabric is getting weak.
However, we hope you enjoy its impressive design as a handicraft material!
