One of the best quality Mituri for the noble old men. It is woven with bark of bush clover, sedge and sedge core, and inner skin of paper mulberry. The front part is constructed more than two hundred hemp braces. The sole is constructed with six weft cords made of the sedge’s core and bark of bush clover. The side braces are separately twisted and embedded into the sole. It seems like it’s never worn.
