“Kamon” is a cool Japanese crest
Do you know traditional Japanese crests called “Kamon”?
Kamon had begun to be used as a sign of family’s identity by nobles in the Heian period. After that, Kamon extended into samurai families and common people. It is said that there are 20000 type Kamons exist now.
Although almost all of Kamons were designed ages ago, people all over the world praised “Kamon is cool!”
Those unique designs are incorporated to kanzashi as a fashion item by a artist “Atelier hana e”.
This silver Kamon kanzashi that she handmade is a new type kanzashi which is arranged in a modern style. The silver kanzashi is designed to suit both kimono and western clothes, so we recommend it to all women regardless of age or nationality!

We introduce the silver kanzashi which is designed a pretty Kamon.
Don’t you think that there are three hearts? If you just insert this kanzashi into your updo hair, it will attract people’s attention as a brilliant accent!
Although this Kamon design looks feminine, it is a actual Kamon which has been used for a long time. Moreover, Katabami mon (Kamon of oxalis) is the one of the prestigious Kamon.
The charm of Katabami
Katabami is a lovely plant which has three heart-shaped leaves and vivid yellow flower. Katabami had been loved especially by samurai families as a symbol of the prosperity of family and descendants, because it is kind of weeds growing any place.
Katabami is also called “Kagami gusa (mirror grass)”. This name came from what Katabami had been used for polishing mirrors and Buddhist altar object made of brass. For this reason, it has the flower language “brilliant heart”.
In addition, Katabami is called “Hallelujah” in Spain and France. From this, it also has flower language “gladness”
Katabami hides a strength and a special brilliance in lovely appearances. In order to turn on the charm of Katabami kanzashi, it will match cool fashion rather than feminine fashion.
