This is a tasteful tsuzure Nagoya Obi.
This piece was woven by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Textile is tsuzure silk, and has soft touch.
It is sewn as hiraki-shitate(opened tailoring)
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 on the base due to its age.
It has some blackish stains on 'otaiko'(square bow), that are disturbing. (1st flaw photo)
It has light brownish stains on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).
However, when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), they will be hidden.
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
And it has blackish smudges along lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its tasteful design!


*Kawashima Textiles Co.*

In 1843, company founder, Jimbei Kawashima, opened a fabrics store in Nishijin, Kyoto.
Now Kawashima has two ongoing businesses, traditional garments/textiles and interior products, such as curtains.
The three lines and Gunpai, referee's fan, emblem are the two significant marks of the brand.
The brand is famous because their products and design are elegant, detailed and sophisticated.
Their Hon Fukuro obi is especially highly evaluated for its comfortableness and evenness in thickness.
