This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of bamboo, 'sakura'(cherry blossom) and 'kaede'(maple leaf) on clouds, which is dyed.
Gold glazing is added to the design.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it is discolored overall, especially rather prominent discoloration can be seen from tare end to upper otaiko.
There are patinas on the otaiko and maegara(front patterned part), and they are noticeable.
Besides it has some other flaws such as whitish spots of molds(4th flaw photo) and folding lines(6th flaw photo).
Please check photos for details.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the patinas.
However, we hope you enjoy its tasteful design!
