    Seems to me, that most Kamikaze bands I've seen were made of silk...but I could be wrong. They did make other types of head bands in Cotton also. They Were enormously replicated from almost day one after the war and ever since,though, I know. Japanese artifacts were never my strong point. William

    My neighbor has one of these, but he cannot find it, he just turned 89 today, thinks he might have given it to his son, but not sure, he was in the Navy WW2 pilot trainer.
