The Japanese term 'sarashi' refers to a type of bleached cloth.[1][2] Such cloth may be used to wrap around the body under a kimono. It may be used to wrap around the chest area,[3][4] sometimes it is wrapped round below the belly during pregnancy, or around the waist after the birth of a child. It may also be used by men.[5] The whiteness and purity of the cloth has ritual significance, therefore it may also be used in rituals.[6][7]
