This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of seasonal flowers on 'tabane-noshi' (tied gift wrapping paper), which is woven on the foiled background.
It also has a design of butterfly and 'ume'(Japanese plum).
Gold foil threads woven in the design are gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft and smooth touch.
It has tiny snags on otaiko.
There is a stain upper otaiko, but may be hidden when tied.
There are small weaving flaws and a snag on maegara(front patterned part).
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), they will be hidden.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
