It also has other auspicious designs as cranes and shou-chiku-bai(auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and Japananese aprocot blossom).
Textile is silk and has soft touch.
A embroidered with kinkoma(golden outlining embroidered work) kamon(family crest) is on lining.
There are patinas in places and a large stain on lining, they are rather prominent.
