As shown in an image, the partial section on the reverse side is opened for removing the interior material (a cotton pad)...

This large (6-haba-width) kaya mosquito net reminds almost an organic cotton softness, partially from well use. Unlike commonly seen linen kaya net, this one certainly has a rare texture to feel. The color of the kaya is "rustic" off-white (some uneven), like a cotton canvas, patterned with simple and warm indigo stripes. It is a basic 'hiraori' flat weave and shows some unevenness as a proof of a hand-span weaving...

This charming child's maekake (maedare) apron is made from an old plaid indigo kasuri fabric and a solid indigo fabric as backing. There are four ties along the edge to secure the apron for a child body. As a simple piece as it is, there is such a warm and nostalgic atmosphere that anyone can fondly relate. Due to the age and heavy use, there is a two inch wide hole on the chest area, which also somehow adds a humorous charm. Ca. the Meiji era (the late 1800 to the early 1900s)...

The two types of “cluster” designs show a chrysanthemum-like floral motif and “I-gata”, well-crib, motif in center respectively. The placement of the patterns is somewhat irregular and it emphasizes the unique “movement” of overall impression. The backing fabric is a solid...
