This is a graceful vintage Nagoya obi with bold "Tachibana" (Japanese green citrus) design, which is embroidered.
It is woven diamond lattice pattern on the base.
Kanko Shibori(tie-dye) is added to the design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short. 329cm(10ft 9.53in)

It has big loose threads on 'Koma'(outlining embroidery work) of 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) partly.
Although not shown on the figure, it has peeling spots of gold and silver foil threads.
It has discoloration on the base due to its age, and has tiny patinas.
It has rather prominent and brownish stains in places.
It has a noticeable dyestuff next to 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side. (4th flaw photo)
Although there is no photo of it, it has two rather big stains on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of Kansai wrap(rotate obi clockwise) side.
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

It needs to repair before you wear.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
