I am trying to interpret the head wear seen on the woman in red plaid in this painting http://www.emuseum.jp/detail/100150/000/000?mode=detail&d_lang=en&s_lang=en&class=1&title=&c_e=®ion=&era=¢ury=&cptype=&owner=&pos=25&num=3

Does anyone know what it is called or where other examples might be found? I am not quite sure what to make of it from this one painting.

Thanks

I'm thinking it is a type of "tokin" (head cloth). My guess is that
it is a rectangle with ties on both ends that tie together. The
problem I run into is that there appear to only be two ties hanging
down at the sides, when I would calculate there should be four. If I
find anything more, I'll let you know.

The head wear in question looks an awful lot like the hat my Knight usually wears. I can't remember what he calls it, but I know his is made of 100% silk velvet with a silk band at the bottom that wraps around the back of his head and ties. I will upload a pic of him wearing it to the files for the group. The pic is called Third Baron and he is in profile wearing a black kosode over red and a black hat with white band. Hope it helps.

Nope, that's an eboshi. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sca-jml/files/Garb%20files/ includes a PDF pattern file for various eboshi types.

I feel certain that the women in the Maple Viewers are wearing some sort of head wrap. (Of course, this particular styles ISN'T in my book on hair and headwear!!!)

The "tails" might be achieved by using a separate strip of cloth, which might or might not be sewn to a larger rectangle covering the hair. Experimentation in front of a mirror is definitely called for...

I wanted to thank everyone for their comments so far on this one. I will try to see what more I can find. I think the worst part is that the example has a bit of damage on the two women who are apparently wearing the same head wear making it difficult to even guess at construction. I will share what I find if I find more. And of course I will happily welcome any more information that anyone else may find.

**De-lurk mode**

The central figures seem to be wearing this kind of wrapped headgear in
Merrymaking under the Cherry Blossoms as well:
http://www.emuseum.jp/detail/100159/000/000?mode=detail&d_lang=en&s_lang=en&class=1&title=&c_e=®ion=&era=¢ury=&cptype=&owner=&pos=25&num=6

It looks like it is the same thing as what is worn by some ladies in Jidai

I too would love to know the proper term for it. Also, if it is one or
more pieces of fabric. Hopes this helps a little.

YIS,

I was almost thinking the same thing, though it isn't really a binan
boshi because it doesn't have the "ears", and the hair is showing in a
way that I don't quite see on the binan boshi.

Ok so while searching on something else entirely I stumbled across this thread http://www.immortalgeisha.com/ig_bb/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=14758 About half way down on the page someone posted a series of pictures apparently from this book http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/4879405728/ref=ox_ya_oh_product The images from the book to me look like they could perhaps be the same base object but tied differently. Additionally the images from the book make me think that if the ties were undone they might actually look almost exactly like the painting.

Does anyone on the list have the referenced book or know the name for the head wrap presented in the pictures?

Thanks
Agnes

This does look like a simple cloth wrap. Taking an educated guess, the fabric is about 18 inches wide and length will vary. The Jidai Matsuri is a beautiful visual reference. I've gathered a few images that will hopefully help envision how it wraps around the head.

These two links show close-ups of the Izumonookuni followers. You can see how the cloth wraps around the head, almost to the side and is then twisted and tucked to create the "ears". Instead of tucking the ends of the cloth, pulling the fabric all the way through will eliminate the "ears" effect.

http://www.flickriver.com/photos/mboogiedown/279380531/

This image is of Katsura women. Looking at the back of her head you can see the opening of the cloth and how it wraps to the front. Slightly different, instead of wrapping towards the front, it's tied initially in the back before the left-over tails are fashioned on the forehead.
http://pds.exblog.jp/pds/1/201006/22/20/a0037120_11493548.jpg

Lastly is an image of musicians, wearing the same style wrap as the Izumonookuni followers but in plain white. The image is not as close-up but it does make it easier to see the similarity of this style wrap in comparison to the one in painting.
