A popular accessory which is important to have if you plan to wear your armor with your hakama is the kyahan.
The Kyahan (known as gaiters by westerners) were leggings worn by Samurai, their retainers, Shinobi and farmers in feudal Japan.
Kyahan were used to hold their wide pant legs in and as extra padding underneath the samurai shin armor (suneate).
These Kyahan are made entirely by my hand, and are typically constructed from a double layered blend of linen and rayon fabric. This blend preserves a traditional feel, while maintaning durability.
When tying kyahan, the inner cords are shorter than the outer ones. The cords were tied on the inner side of the legs to help prevent discomfort when the suneate (shin-guards) were placed over the kyahan.
