This is a 'Hige-Tsumugi'(weft yarns come out like 'hige'(beard)) Nagoya obi
with exotic bird on stripe design, which is dyed.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch with knobs of yarns.
There is a designer's signature on the 'tare'(wide end).
It has stains on the 'taresaki'(end of wide part) and the bottom of 'otaiko'(square bow), but they will be hidden if tied neatly.
It has slight discoloration from 'tare'(wide end) to 'otaiko'(square bow).
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Though it has some flaws, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its rustic pattern!
