This is an elegant vintage Nagoya obi
with a design of vibrant kaede (maple leaf) on stream, which is embroidered.
The fine embroidery work has three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Textile is glossy shusu(satin) silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short.125.20in(318cm)
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
It has discoloration by ages overall.
(refer to the 6th flaws photo)
It has stains and frays on the tare.
It has frayed on the tare end, edges and background, so the fabric is getting weak.
It has some other flaws such as tiny snags (refer to the 4th flaws photo) and folding lines (refer to the 8th flaws photo).
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the weaken fabric.
Please enjoy the cute classical taste of Japanese vintage via this item.
