This is a vintage Nagoya obi with yaezakura(double cherry blossoms) pattern, which is embroidered.
The red and pink pattern glows very well on the black background.
Textile is glossy and soft silk and jinken (rayon) blend.
There is only one 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) on Kantou-maki (rotate obi counter-clockwise) side.

There are loose stitches. The sewing threads have been weaken.
There are loose stitches on the embroidered pattern of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly). Some if embroidered threads are missing. (A: The small black hole like area is missing salmon pink threads caused by fray.)
There are slightly whitish spots caused by fray. The one on maegara could be slightly noticeable.(B) Other frays are small and not that noticeable.
Although it's not mentioned on the figure, there is a long fray on the sewn closed side of the narrow belt part from maegara to 'tesaki'(end of folded part).
(You can see a part of it on the photo of (B))
(C) is stitches to close the narrow belt part around the folded triangle, which is not a imperfection.
There are some other imperfections such as slight discoloration and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo, there are spots where are missing embroidery threads on the leaves of lower center and right end 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern. (refer to the 5th and 7th photo from top)

The threads don't have enough strength to tie.
However, it is still glamorous design which we would like you to enjoy.
How about making a pre-tied Obi!
Enjoy wearing the elegant design.
