This is a summer ro opened Nagoya obi
with 'Kikyo'(Chinese bellflower) on 'Shikishi'(square paper) design, which is woven.
Textile is exquisite transparent ro silk and has relatively crisp touch.
It has loosen stitches on the otaiko(square bow) edges and a tiny stain in the center of otaiko(square bow).
(refer to the 1st-2nd flaws photo)
It has deep patinas on both sides of 'Maegara' (front patterned part) and discoloration on one side.
(refer to the 3rd-4th flaws photo)
It has prominent folding lines and rather large stain near the tesaki.(refer to the 5th/ A B flaws photo)
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the prominent flaws.
Please enjoy its graceful design!
