This is an elegant Nagoya obi with 'hana karakusa' (flower arabesque) design, which is woven boldly on the vibrant green base.
Gold and silver foil threads are added to the design and elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.

It has an opening inside of 'taresaki'(end of wide part) to check the weavers. (First photo of flaws)
It has slight folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Not shown on the sheet, it has a snag on 'tare'(wide end) but it is not seen when tied.
The fabric of outside has been shrunk slightly, and its lining fabric has been pulled out a bit. (Please see the photo of 'otaiko'(square bow))

It is in very good condition as a whole.
Please enjoy this elegant fashion.
