Karako

This Karako (唐子), a boy dressed in ancient Chinese clothes, is a traditional design pattern on silk textile used for haura, the back of a haori (a coat worn over a kimono).

Karako

Karako were very popular and can be found on everything from clothing to accessories to ceramics, and even as actual dolls. Usually they are extremely cute, but occasionally they can be a bit scary-looking as well. Because Karako are so common and exist in such a wide variety and form they are a great theme for a collection.
