This is a thin vintage Nagoya obi for summer with a yuki-shiba(snowy grass) and autumn grasses pattern such as nadeshiko(fringed pink), kikyo(Japanese bell flower) and hagi(bush clover), which is embroidered.
A traditional pattern of cloud and 'matsukawa-hishi'(a pine bark diamond) is added with the kiribame(patchwork) technique.
The textile is transparent silk and has soft touch.
If you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to the left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the 'maegara'(the front design) will show.
The length is rather short, 338.5 cm(11'1") long.

Another fabric is attached to the wrong side of the 'otaiko'(the square bow) and it is torn and has hole, which seems to weaken.
(Any of the tears are in the wrong side of the attached fabric.)
Though not shown in the figures, the embroidery work is nearly coming loose at the 'otaiko'(the square bow) and 'maegara'(the front design).
It has discoloration in the white parts and tiny yellow patches(patina) due to its age.
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
