This is a fashionable Tsumugi Nagoya obi with a woven design like damask.
Gold foil threads are embroidered in the outlines of the pattern, shining modestly.
The 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to the left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the Maegara will be seen.
The textile is knotted silk, and has soft touch.
The length is rather short, 328.5 cm(10'8").

Basting stitches remain on the 'tare-saki'(tare end), so it seems to have been cleaned.

There are a few 1mm(0.03in) patches of patina on the 'otaiko'(the square bow), which is a little more noticeable than in the photo.(refer to the 2nd photo of the flaws)
Though not shown in the figures, there are also similar patches of patina near the 'maegara'(the front design), but they are not noticeable.
There are some other faults, which are not disturbing to wear.
For details, please check the figure and photos.

If you do not mind these small patches of patina on the 'otaiko'(the square bow), it still can be worn.
We hope you enjoy this stylish fashion!
