This is an exquisite Nagoya obi with 'Ume'(Plum blossoms) and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) like flower design, which is woven.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads are added to the design.
Silver foil threads are added to the bamboo design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

You can see the three lines and 'gunpai'(referee's fan) mark on the tare end, which are the evidence of Kawashima's obi.

It has slight discoloration that may be disturbing because of its base color.
It has a slight stain on bamboo design of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side, that is not so noticeable.
The folding lines are no problem to wear.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy its exquisite design!
