This is a Tsume tsuzure Nagoya obi
with 'Botan'(peony) motif, which is woven.
It was woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique. One thread by one thread, elaborately with nails.
It takes incredibly long time to complete. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise).
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.*
There is a stain on the wrong side of 'tare'(wide end).
There are folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Non of the flaws bother to wear.
Enjoy wearing the elegant design.
