This is an eye-catching vintage Nagoya obi
with powerful karajishi(lion) pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has some snags in places, especially, lots of snags can be seen on the right side of maegara(front patterned part).
There are some more patinas than the figure shown, but are not so prominent.(A and 2nd flaw photo)
The stain on 'tesaki'(narrow end) can be hidden when tied. (4th flaw photo)
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
