This is a zestful Shioze Nagoya obi
with mountain scenery design, which is dyed with 'sumie' (ink brush painting)-like technique.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has a stamp of the designer's signature lower otaiko.
Another fabrics (damask effect(rinzu) silk with sayagata pattern) are seamed near triangle part and tesaki(narrow end).
So that, its length is rather long, 12'9"7/8(391cm).
However, they can be hidden when tied.
It has a small stain on otaiko, and it might be disturbing.(1st flaw photo)
Other stains, patinas and pinholes can be hidden when tied.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy its tasteful fashion as a daily wear!
