This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with nandina design, which is dyed.
Subtle shade of sumi ink expresses its delicate depth.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the lower otaiko(square bow).
The length is rather long.150.00in(381cm)
It has some tiny stains on otaiko(square bow) and 'Maegara' (front patterned part) and they are a little bothering.
It has a few noticeable stain on the plain part, but they will be hidden when tied.
It has some other flaws such as slight discoloration and folding lines overall.
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it is still in wearable condition.
Please enjoy this graceful piece.
