The "okoso-zukin" (combination hood and veil) was a winter costume for women. Covering the entire head and part of the face, it is a square cloth with a string that is tied under the chin. Women sometimes used the "okoso-zukin" to cover their mouth. Women wrapped it in both a clockwise and counter clockwise direction.
