This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with edible wild vgetable design such as clover, which is dyed.
The shade of sumi is so tasteful.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the tare.
*Though the photo shows uneven colors by the angle of light, actual background color is one color.
It has many stains except otaiko(square bow).
It has stains on both 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), the stains are not so noticeable.
The tiny holes on otaiko(square bow) are not so bothering.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though not indicated, it has slight stains on upper and below the otaiko(square bow), but they will be hidden when tied.
However, if these flaws do not bother you, it could be worn.
Please enjoy this chic design for your daily use.
