This is a tasteful 'Hige-Tsumugi'(weft yarns come out like 'hige'(beard)) Nagoya obi
with rural scenery design, which is dyed.
Textile is Tsumugi
silk and has soft and nubby touch.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature upper tare.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, the fabric of the 'tare'(wide end) might be shrunk.
So that, a little bit of the fabric of the wrong side was pulled and came out to the right side.
It has patinas on tare and discoloration overall, but they are slight so not prominent.
There are other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
*It has a bit of mold smell.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its rustic fashion as a daily wear!
