>"The collection of costumes began in 1929 when the company, at the time Marubeni Shoten, purchased a Noh costume. On many occasions, the company collected kosode (short-sleeved kimonos) from the Edo Period and kimonos created by modern craftsmen. The costumes were collected not only to study their design and creation. The people of Marubeni Shoten were also concerned about the declining value of dyed textiles amid the confusion before and during the war and decided to collect the costumes to leave behind a legacy for future generations. Such efforts resulted in the collection of about 400 costumes."
