This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with a design of 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), which is dyed and embroidered.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature upper tare.
Tare end and tesaki(narrow end) are roughly sewn by individuals.
There are patinas on otaiko, but they are tiny so not prominent when tied.
Dyestuffs and snags of otaiko are also small, so not disturbing.
There are other flaws such as slight discoloration.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its tasteful fashion!
