Cotton girl's juban (under kimono) for furisode (formal kimono) with katazome pattern. It is called beni-itajime which is one kind of board-clamped dyeing with benibana (safflower). Benibana was very precious in old days and it was mainly grown in Shonai region in Yamagata prefecture. The last photo shows the process of beni-itajime in old days (Reference source: Yomigaeru Maboroshino Senshoku, published by Shimane Museum of Ancient Izumo). Meiji period (1868~1912). In excellent condition except for benibana color faded in the middle part that often happens in benibana dyed textiles, and also the color bleeding in the hem of the lining. 108cm x 112.5cm
