Lined Costume in BINGATA dyeing
This is a winter lined costume for women. It is called WATANSU, and was worn over DUJIN and KAKAN. Japanese classic patterns of SHOCHIKUBAI (combination of pine, bamboo and plum) and YUKIMOCHIZASA (snow on bamboo grass) were used on the yellow-colored outer material, which was the symbolic color for the royal family. The yellow-colored lining has a key-fret pattern of classical crosses called SAYAGATA, and cherry blossom patterns on it. For the coloring of yellow, orpiment was applied over vegetable dyes.
