Kimono Fabric Circles Necklace—TSUBAKI PATTERN—S/L
We incorporated ancient Japanese motifs into cute necklaces. These auspicious designs and colors combine traditional elegance with modern style.
In Japanese culture, there are two characters, both of which are pronounced as "wa." One can be interpreted as representing Japan, Japanese culture, and social harmony. The other represents a circle or ring, which implies unity.
Thus, we chose to create circles based on these concepts using Chirimen and polyester fabric with paper inside.
Chirimen is one of Japan's most celebrated fabrics thanks to its use in breathtakingly gorgeous and elegant kimonos. Made by weaving plain silk yarn and characterized by little bumps on its surface, it is also tough and practical in many ways. We use Nikoshi Chirimen, made in the Tango Peninsula, located in the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture, and dyed in Kyoto City.
This one features a camellia flower (Tsubaki) pattern. The red flowers symbolize love, and the white ones show longing. As camellia bloom in the winter, they inspire hope for the coming spring. The background's black color represents mystery, night, and clarity.
