This is a tasteful Shioze Nagoya obi
with a scenery design of mountain and rural house, which is dyed with 'sumie' (ink brush painting) technique.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature lower otaiko.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.
Slight discoloration can be seen throughout both edges and on the creases.
Stains upper otaiko are tiny so not disturbing.
There are other flaws such as prominent folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
