This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of Kanji character 'hana'(flower) 'kokoro'(heart), which is woven.
Silver foil threads woven in the background are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has stamp and sign of the designer's signature.
Silver foils of maegara(front patterned part) are discolored and they are prominent.(7th flaw photo)
Stains and patinas(3rd flaw photo) on otaiko are slight so they are not so noticeable.
There are other flaws such as patinas(B) on the blank part and folding lines(no photo).
Please check detail photos.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the discoloration of maegara.
However, we hope you enjoy its stylish design!
