This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with lovely rose pattern, which is dyed.
The fine gold and silver embroidery works are applied on the pattern for adding extra gorgeousness to it.
(The embroidered works are applied only on one side. When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the embroidered pattern appears.)
Textile is shioze silk with its characteristic soft and smooth texture.
There is slight discoloration throughout.
There is a dyestuff on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly). It is located 2"(5cm) from the pattern which could be seen when you tie it.
There are slight stains and folding lines on the narrow belt part.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Although it has such flaws, it is still in wearable condition.
Enjoy wearing the lovely design.
