Mino rain wear

Dear H-net Scholars! 

I am working with an exhibition at the National Museums of World Culture, Sweden. We are planning to exhibit a traditional Mino rain garment collected in 1910. (See drawing here  http://collections.smvk.se/carlotta-vkm/web/object/1360342). I am new to the field of Japanese material culture and I have had difficulties finding anything written in English about these types of rain wear, other than brief mentions. I would be most grateful for any assistance in directing me to research concerning Mino/traditional rain wear or adjacent areas of research.

Best regards 

Kristoffer Ekberg
