This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with flowers such as 'Ume'(Plum blossoms), 'Kaede'(maple leaf) and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on sail pattern, which is dyed and embroidered.
The fine embroidery works which were done a stitch by a stitch are three dimensional and beautifully glossy.
The fine gold glazing works are applied on the pattern.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
There are a couple of small stains on 'otaiko'(square bow) which are not that noticeable.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right (Rotate obi clockwise), the stain (A) will be hidden.
There are some other flaws such as slight discoloration.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Although it has some flaws, none of them bother to wear.
Enjoy wearing the elegant design.
