Keiko (袿袴), The "Keiko" was established in 1885 (Meiji 17). It is used by holding the noblewoman to attend the various ceremonies of the court. It includes a "Uchiki" (outerwear, 袿), associated with a "kiribakama" (hakama skirt, 切袴). The "Uchiki" is purple and has circular woven patterns of white plum blossoms. When wearing the "keiko", we put shoes made of the same material as the kiribakama.
