This girl doll has a composition head, glass eyes, and black, shoulder-length hair with bangs. Her eyelashes and lips are painted. She wears two (possibly even three) layers of clothing, perhaps made out of silk or cotton. If silk, her robe is a kimono; if cotton, she is wearing the lighter summer kimono known as yukata. Her robe is light blue with orange- and lilac-colored peony blossoms, leaves, and white-water swirls. Her inner robe layer (at the sleeve area) is orange with a white dot/square pattern. The other layer can be seen at her leg/foot area and is cream-colored with orange and green plants, as well as geometric linear patterns. She wears a red brocade obi (sash) with crane patterns and a red cloth that ties in the middle. Another piece of fabric, called the obi-age, is tucked into the red obi at the top. At one point, she also had a sensu (folding fan) tucked into her obi, though that is now lost.
A composition doll is made of a material called "composition," which is made from a mixture of sawdust, glue, and other materials such as cornstarch, resin, and wood flour. Originating in the 19th century, composition dolls were marketed as unbreakable, as the material was sturdier than previously used substances.
