Two pieces of "hitoe" make the "hitoe-gasane" style. In the same way, three pieces of it make the"hineri-gasane" style.
The costumes of Hojo Masako (1157-1225), the wife of Minamoto no Yoritomo, the founder of Kamakura Shogunate, are kept in the Tsuruokahachiman Shrine.
They are three kinds of "hineri-gasane" and a piece of "Hitoe."
Kenshunmonin Chunagon Diary has described about the combination of three pieces of "hitoe."
It is considered to be a court lady's everyday wear.
August is in September of the solar calendar. Therefore, it is autumn. June is in July of the solar calendar.
Therefore, since it was in the midst of summer, "hitoe" was made into the array of everyday wear in piles at two sheets.
This photograph shows "hitoe-kasane" of summer.
The material is raw silk.
The pattern "fusen-aya" could be used, but the composite figure is wearing "hitoe" with the pattern of "saiwai-bishi mon" which is indigo blue in color.
The undergarment is called "kakitsubata-gasane (iris suit)" which is yellowish green in color.
The figure is also wearing "kosode (=undergarment, literally short sleeve)" and red "naga-bakama."
