This is an attractive Nagoya obi with 'sakura'(cherry blossom) pattern, which is woven on the grass green base.
This piece is made by Kawashima Weaving Co., one of the most famous obi weavers.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

There are a gunpai-mark(referee's fan) and three lines, which are distinct features of textile woven by Kawashima Weaving Co, one of the most famous obi weavers in Kyoto.

It has folding lines throughout from tesaki(one end) to taresaki(end of wide part) but those on 'tare'(wide end) part are unremarkable.
A sang is tiny.
It has slight discolorations, patinas and prominent stains on the wrong side.
It also has seams on the wrong side.
Please check photos and figure.

The right side is in very good condition.
It is still wearable enough.

Please enjoy this elegant fashion.
