This is a chic Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of waka(Japanese poem) and royal cart on fan, which is dyed.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
Basting stitches remains from 'tesaki'(narrow end) to maegara(front patterned part).
It is discolored slightly overall.
Basting stitches remains on the wrong side of tesaki.(A)
The stains of maegara can be hidden when tied.
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
