This is a Nagoya obi with a branched ume(Japanese apricot) pattern, which is dyed.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads are woven on the charming round-shaped pattern.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Three lines and gunbai(referee's fan) mark, which are features of the Kawashima Weaving Co., are woven inside of the tare.

The white threads of the 'maegara'(the front design) are frayed and have fluff a little.(refer to the 1st photo of flaws)
Though not shown in the figures, the gold foil of the 'te-saki'(one end) threads are a little peeling off.
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

If you do not mind these faults, it still can be worn.
We hope you enjoy this elegant fashion!
