Anne Liese's Fibers and Stuff

Kosode and Hakama

The terms Heian, Kamakura, Muromachi, Momoyama refer to historical eras. See the Japanese Historical Eras reference page.

similar to outfits for female dancers and shrine maidens

kosode (top) and women's hakama (pants)

Good fabrics: Stiff, opaque silk or linen. Top was almost always white and hakama were almost always red. Was also common to have alternating red and white layers on the top, which can be faked by adding fake red & white collars to the kosode.
