Pastel 'ume' blossom adorn this kimono, alongside 'nami' waves and ‘fuji' flowers.   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. It became a symbol of good fortune, as is used for New Year decorations.   Fuji, the wisteria plant was fist celebrated by Aristocratic society in the Heian era 794-185AD, it signifies love, support and tenderness.

 The fabric is a silk woven with a pattern of 'sayagata', a repeating pattern of the Buddhist swastika symbol: comprising of left- and right-facing swastikas joined by lines.  The pattern adds sheen and texture
