A bright pattern celebrating the ‘seigaiha’ pattern. Often called by it’s nick name ‘Fish Scales’ this ‘Blue Wave’ is used on all forms of Japanese design. The repetitive pattern of waves was used on Chinese maps to depict the sea. It was made popular by the artist Seikai Kanshichi. It symbolises the desires for peaceful living, like continual tranquil waves.
The design is printed on a rinzu silk, a damask silk woven with a pattern of 'tsuyushiba' patterns woven into the fabric giving with a textured finish. These crescent shaped motifs symbolise Dew Drops on Grass: it means freshness and so is most commonly found on summer kimono.
This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan. It is approximately 20-30 years old.
Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
