This is a Tsume tsuzure Nagoya obi with pair phoenixes design which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the design and base are elegantly shining.
Textile is thick silk and has smooth touch.
It also has "Hatsurikou" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is the distinctive feature of Tsume tsuzure weave.

It was woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique. One thread by one thread, elaborately with nails.
It takes incredibly long time to complete. It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.

When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.

The width from 'tare'(wide end) to upper 'otaiko'(square bow) is shorter about 0.6in(1.5cm) than the 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) .(A)
The width of maegara is 12.6in(32cm).
Threads of both side are pulled out.(B)

Woven silver foil threads are discolored,otaiko becomes black.(E)
It has some other flaws such as small stains and a folding line.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the discoloration of otaiko.
However we hope you enjoy its tasteful design.
