This is an elegant tsume-tsuzure Nagoya obi with a scenery pattern, which is woven.
It has big peach tree design.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.
It also has "Hatsurime" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is the distinctive feature of Tsume tsuzure weave.
It is sewn as hiraki-shitate(opened tailoring)
Maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.

It was woven amazingly with "Tsume Tsuzure" technique. One thread by one thread, elaborately with nails.
It takes incredibly long time to complete.

There are lots of stains.
A tiny but prominent stain is on the top of 'otaiko'(square bow).
A big but slight stain is on the lower 'otaiko'(square bow).
Other stains on the upper 'otaiko'(square bow) are slight and not so noticeable from a distance.(First photo of flaws)
Stains on 'maegara' (front patterned part) are slight and tiny.
Disturbing stains(A) on 'maegara' (front patterned part) would not be seen when tied.
Other stains and patinas are tiny, and most of them are not seen when tied.
It also has tiny dyestuffs(B) and prominent folding lines.
Please check photos and figure.

Not shown on the sheet and in the photos, it has prominent patinas on fringe of tesaki(one end).

If you don't mind those flaws, it is still in good condition to wear.
Please enjoy this tasteful fashion.
