This is a gorgeous Nagoya obi
with 'housouge'(large karabana flower) on stream pattern, which is woven by Kawashima weaving co.
There is a Gunpai mark of Kawashima on the wrong side of tare end.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is sewn by Kintetsu Department Store.
Snags on the maegara(front patterned part) are small, so they are not prominent when tied.
There are other flaws such as folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied!
Please enjoy its luxurious pattern adding extra elegance to your kimono fashion!
