Japanese Antique Textile Kuzufu Kariginu & Hakama
Sold. Thank you.

This is a set of kariginu and hakama which are handwoven of kuzu fiber for wefts and cotton threads for warps. Kariginu used to be a casual wear of the court nobles since Heian period ( ca. the end of 8th to the early 11th century ), but originally it was worn at the hunting ( kari ), so it is called Kariginu. Kariginu and hakama are now worn by Shinto priests in ceremonial occasions. The kuzu fiber had been worn since ancient time, however a few of it is produced in Kakegawa in Shizuoka prefecture. In good condition except for some moth bites, wear and rifts. Kariginu: 166cm x 140cm Hakama length: 85cm
