The uchiki is a garment with wide sleeve opening that was worn by women in the imperial court. Clothing worn by the nobility originated in garments donned when attending the court in ancient times, and reached maturity during the Heian period. Attire then became simplified with the passing eras. However, while the junihitoe, or 12-layered robe, as formal wear for women received some modifications over time, the basic style has remained essentially unchanged. Still today, it can be seen as attire worn during imperial weddings and similar formal occasions.
Meanwhile, the keiko, or uchigibakama, is said to have come into use as day-to-day wear around the middle of the Heian period. This was a combination of the uchiki, hakama (a pleated trousers), and hitoe (an unlined robe). The keiko became ceremonial wear during the Edo period. In the Meiji period, the keiko acquired a place alongside European attire in the imperial court, when it was formally established as ceremonial wear for women in the imperial family and court.
This exhibition introduces uchiki and related materials drawn from collections held by Kyoto Prefecture. You are invited into the world of apparel beauty for women of the imperial court – attire supported by high-level weaving technology (for example, double-weave) for creation of complex designs, light gauzes and more.
