Chōken (長絹)

A unlined, long-sleeved garment worn by dancing female characters. Chōken are made with either the gauze-like ro or sha fabrics, with designs woven in gold or coloured thread, giving them an elegant quality. They may also be worn by the role of a young nobleman in place of unlined Happi.
