Left radical is 'cloth'. Right radical is a character only found in Chinese, meaning 'full'. This character originally signified the width of a roll of cloth; now it means 'width' in general. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'field' (田), 'opening/entrance' (口), and 'one' (一), and as a mnemonic: 'One cloth spans width of entrance to field.'
