This is a marvelous vintage Nagoya obi with a design of 'kaede'(maple leaf) on wave, which is embroidered on the black base.
Cut velvet technique is added to the design.
Gold foil threads are woven in the vibrant design.

Both sides have 'maegara' (front patterned part).
The maegara of Kansai wrap(rotate obi clockwise) side has the embroidered design with the loop velvet technique.
The maegara of Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side has the design with the loop velvet technique only.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short, 128in(325cm).

Although not shown on the figure, it has some whitish flaws on upper 'otaiko'(square bow), edge of maegara and so on.(Most of them will be hidden, when tied.)
Discoloration on the base is slight and not so bothering.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines, so for the details please refer to the photos and figure.

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