This is a fantastical Shioze Nagoya obi
with a silhouette of trees and arabesque-like decorative design, which is dyed.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
There is a dyestuff-like rubbed flaw on otaiko.(indicated as stain)
There are some more similar flaws than the figure shown, and they will be appeared when tied.
Stains on the triangle part can be hidden when tied.(A)
Stains like (A) can be seen on the right side of maegara(front patterned part), too.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it also has slight and tiny stains on the wrong side of maegara, but they are not so prominent.
Discoloration on the blank part is slight, so not disturbing.
Besides, it has pinholes throughout both edges.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its tasteful fashion as a daily wear!
