This is a stylish Shioze Nagoya obi
with butterfly-like abstract design, which is dyed.
Embroidery work is added on the design partly.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has large stains on otaiko and maegara(front patterned part), and they are disturbing.(B)
Discoloration can be seen overall, especially, the one mentioned on the figure is prominent.
The stain on otaiko is also bothering.
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable.
However, we hope you enjoy its artistic design as a handicraft material!
