Random information on the term “Draped garment”:

A chiton (Greek: χιτών, khitōn) was a form of clothing in Ancient Greece, worn by both sexes, but especially men. It is a sewn garment, unlike the female peplos, a draped garment held on the shoulders by a fibula.

There are two forms of chiton, the Doric chiton and the later Ionic chiton. The Doric style was simpler and had no sleeves, being simply pinned, sewn, or buttoned at the shoulder. The Ionic style was made of a much wider piece of fabric, and was pinned, sewn, or buttoned all the way from the neck to the wrists and the excess fabric gathered by the zone or girdled at the waist. By the late Archaic, Ionic chitons had become more common, especially for men.

The Doric chiton is a single rectangle of woolen or linen fabric. It can be worn plain or with an overfold called an apoptygma, which is more common to women. It can be draped and fastened at the shoulder by pins (fibulae) or sewing, or by buttons. The Ionic chiton could also be made from linen or wool and was draped without the fold and held in place from neck to wrist by several small pins. A large belt called a zoster could be worn over the chiton, usually under the breast (“high-girdled”) or around the waist (“low-girdled”) or a narrower “zone” or girdle could be used. The chiton’s length was greater than the height of the wearer, so excessive fabric was pulled above the belt, like a blouse.

Random information on the term “TOGA”:

Toga (利賀村, Toga-mura) was a village located in Higashitonami District, Toyama Prefecture, Japan.

Historically, along with neighbouring Taira, Kami-Taira and Shirakawa-go, the four villages formed what was known as the Gokayama region. The region is renowned for a unique type of A-frame housing design.[citation needed] These “gassho-zukuri” houses traditionally had thatched roofs and were 3-4 stories high. The design helped keep snow from piling up in the heavy winter conditions.

As of 2003, Toga had an estimated population of 999 and a density of 5.63 persons per km². The total area was 177.58 km². However, the actual population is probably far less as many people who were registered in the village actually reside in neighboring areas.

On November 1, 2004, Toga, along with the towns of Fukuno, Inami and Jōhana, the villages of Inokuchi, Kamitaira and Taira (all from Higashitonami District), and the town of Fukumitsu (from Nishitonami District), was merged to create the city of Nanto.
