This is an elegant Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of rose, which is dyed.
Kaga-Yuzen style worm-eaten holes can be seen on its design.
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 upper tare.
*The real base color is relatively more reddish than the photos.
Stains on otaiko and maegara(front patterned part)(B) are slight so they are not so prominent.
It also has dyestuff-like bluish stains upper otaiko, but they may be hidden when tied.(A)
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its graceful fashion!
