Kimono pattern


Traditional patterns such as trees and flowers of pale colors are depicted on this kimono’s beautiful white cloth. Modest embroideries, gorgeously making a use of a blank space, provide you the real kimono for grown-ups. This simple and somewhat colorless kimono, with the simple yet gorgeous design which you would never get bored of, will be the kimono you would cherish forever.


Kiku (chrysanthemum)


Chrysanthemum is the traditional pattern which is often used for Japanese kimono. Chrysanthemum is the noble flower which is also used as the symbol of the Imperial Court, and it is said that it has a power to protect people from the evil and purify. Japanese people has cherished and loved this flower since ancient days. It is also an auspicious pattern used in the hope of longevity, and is very often used as a pattern on kimono. This pattern can be worn any time of the year, regardless of the season, and so can this kimono.


Matsu (pine)


Pine has been regarded as something very auspicious, for it has the power to keep its green leaves even in the coldest and severe winter, and for its capability to live for more than 1,000 years. It is traditionally used as a pattern for kimono. We can feel the great and detailed technique of the artisan from this pine depicted with the smooth line in the clouds.


Kaioke (bucket for clamshells)


In Japan, there is a traditional play of court nobles called kaiawase (matching clamshells) since the Heian period. Since one must find a clamshell which matches perfectly with the other, this game came to be used for ceremonies which promise matrimonial happiness, and the bucket to put these clamshells also became an auspicious motif to be painted on kimono. Traditionally two buckets are depicted as a pair, to wish for happiness of a couple.
