This is an elegant Nagoya obi
It has been woven bright flower pattern colorfully.
Textile is silk and has soft touch.
Hiyoku (additional layer) is added at otaiko(square bow), looks double.
Tag of Tatsumura is sewn to the the wrong side.
It is sewn as hiraki-shitate(opened tailoring).
May be this piece was tied in unusual knot style, so there are folding lines overall.
A snag at tare-saki(end of the wide part) is small one, so not disturbing.
Also it has other flaws, so please check detail photos.
However, it still can be tied with very good condition.
Please enjoy its gorgeous design of Tatsumura at your hands!
The first generation Heizo Tatsumura is known for an authority of reconstruction of ancient fragment, and he raised his work created by the collection of the skill of the texture to the level of the art textile.
There are three weaving factories, 'Tatsumura Art Textile', 'Tatsumura Textile', and 'Koho Tatsumura', inherited from the first Heizo.
They continue to research for the ancient fragment and inherited the tradition of weaving art creation based on it.
They have been producing original arts which are universally recognized.
