This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with beautiful Rose in the basket design.
It has been embroidered elaborately and its bright design is so eye-catching!
Sailing ship design is dyed with pente(oil-base pigment) at the wrong side of otaiko(square bow).
So it may be able to use as a reversible.
Textile is glossy shusu silk and has smooth touch.
The length is rather short, 10'11"(332cm).
Maegara(front design) is only one side.
So if you start wrapping from your right tummy to left(rotate obi counterclockwise), it will show.
Gold foil threads at otaiko are loosing and will be seen when it tied.
Discoloration at its design are not so disturbing.
Also it has some stains and folding lines.
For the detail, please check figures and photos.
However, we hope you can enjoy its gorgeous design of vintage at your hands!
