Hashi is Japanese for ‘bridge’. This design was inspired by the shape of a beautiful red bridge at a temple in Osaka.  It features one large pocket accessed by a top zipper, and a zipped pocket on the side. Designed with a base panel, so the pouch will stand up.

This kimono features a collection of flowers,  ‘fuji’, and ‘kiku’ flowers with ‘sakura’ blossom, ‘momiji’ and Guruma wheels.

Fuji, wisteria, signifies love, support, sensitivity and tenderness.

Botan, the peony is called 'king of flowers' in Japan.  Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports). 

Sakura, The Cherry Blossom is one of the first of the year to bloom, and blooms for a relatively long time. It holds a special place in hearts of the Japanese: signifying new beginnings.Ume, the Plum Blossom is a very popular symbol on fabrics. It is a favourite within the range of Japanese designs: it’s beauty and fragrance has been reflected in many poems. It is the first of the year to bloom, and therefore represents endurance.
