"Noh Child" Costume

Unusual silk undergarment from a Noh, or perhaps kabuki play.

Small size suggests it was for a child. Light silk with olive-colored medallions with shibori motifs.

The collar - the only part of this that would show to the audience - is heavily embroidered in gold couched bands against a black satin.

Technically wearable but really more suitable for display.

See videos below for information on shibori and Japanese embroidery (couching stitches).
