What was the actual predominant color of the robe worn by Toshiro Mifune in his role as wanna-be samurai Kikuchiyo for the black-and-white Kurosawa film Seven Samurai
? The robe is light in tone as appears to be decorated with a pattern based on feathers or slender leaves.

I ask becasue I have a thesis about the design of the character. I expect the robe to be predominantly one highly specific, quite unusual, color.
