This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
It has a lotus motif, which is dyed.
Gold glazing is added to the design partly.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
It has rather prominent discoloration from tare end to otaiko, and it is disturbing.
Also, discoloration can be seen on the creases.(2nd flaw photo)
There are other flaws such as pinholes.
Please check detail photos.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the discoloration.
However, we hope you enjoy its elegant motif as a handicraft material!
