This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with flowers, birds and stream on jigami'(piece of paper in the shape of folding fan, umbrella etc.) pattern, which is dyed.
The fine gold glazing works are applied on the pattern.
The woven gold foiled threads elegantly shine.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
There are smudges on the 'taresaki'(end of wide part).
There is a stain on 'tare'(wide end) which could be hidden when you tie it.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
It is still in good condition.
Enjoy wearing the elegant design.
