This is an unique Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of part of temple or others, which is dyed.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
*Though the photo shows uneven colors by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
The stain near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is tiny yet noticeable.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), the stain will be hidden.
It has some other flaws such as slight smudges on both edges and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Please enjoy this charming design for your daily use.
