This is a Hige-Tsumugi Nagoya obi
with a design of charming flower, which is dyed.
Its colorful design emerges out against the sedate colored background.
Textile is Tsumugi
silk and the yarns are coming out like 'hige'(beards).
It has tiny patinas but they are not prominent when tied.
A stain on the maegara(front patterned part) is slight and can be hidden when tied.(4th flaw photo)
Discoloration is slight so it is not prominent.(2nd flaw photo)
There are some other flaws so please check photos for details.
If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its elegant fashion!
