This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of seasonal flowers on 'tanzaku'(strip of paper), 'matsu'(pine tree) and 'fuji' (wisteria), which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the design are gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Slight discoloration can be seen on the tare end and throughout both edges.
Snags on otaiko are tiny so not prominent.
There are stains by fray near 'tesaki'(narrow end), but are not bothering for wearing.
There are other flaws such as slight folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its tasteful fashion!
