This is a tasteful Hige-Tsumugi Nagoya obi
with a design of fumi-bako(box for the letters), which is dyed.
This item has charming and unique atmosphere.
Textile is exquisite soft silk with 'hige'(beard) threads coming out.
There are patinas on otaiko and tare end.
It is discolored slightly overall, and there are rather prominent liner discolorations on tare(A), but can be hidden when tied.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), the patinas of maegara(front patterned part) will be hidden.
There are other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still tied.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion as a daily wear!
