This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with charming flower, grass and geometric design, which is dyed.
The charming pattern emerges out against the sedate colored background.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has discoloration by ages overall.
It has blackish molds on the lining and can be seen through, but they will be hidden when tied.(A)
The slight tiny stains on 'Maegara' (front patterned part) (no photo) are not noticeable.
It has some other flaws such as slight stains on the tare end. (refer to the 4th flaws photo)
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
The fabric of the tare seem to be shrunk and the one on the wrong side is coming out.
Though it has some flaws, it is in very good condition overall.
Please enjoy this charming design for your daily use.
