The meaning behind our logo

It is one of the traditional patterns called Wagara which is word that refer to traditional Japanese patterns that are lined up regularly.

What is Wagara?

Wagara contain prayers and thoughts such as fertility of five grains, good luck, good health and longevity, success of schoolwork and performing arts, and prosperity of descendants. In an ideogram, the drawing of a bird or a flower, in a simple geometric patter, beyond the sole aesthetic value, there is a symbol, a personality feature, a wish, a story, a custom, all those patterns have a secular use in Japan, and are traditional on garments, but also ceramics, and even in garden.

Each pattern and design have the meaning?

I have listed a few wagara below

Diamonds: Asanoha
This is also geometric design based on hexagonal shape. The pattern is named after a hemp leaf because this shape resembles. Since hemp leaf grow up so fast, this contains a wish for a child's health growth. This design has often been seen on baby's cloth since early times. Also, it links 6 patterns around a central point, and 6 is a beneficial number.
Waves: Seigaiha
This pattern is sea wave spread like a fan. It was originally introduced from Persia. It has the meaning to lead a peaceful life just like ever-lasting calm wave.
he hexagons: Kikko / Kikkoumon
Kikko means tortoise shell which is taken to symbolise longevity and fortune omen. It is also a very old pattern (middle-age).There are different variants.
The superposed circles: Shippou
This pattern is formed by over lapped each quarter line of the same-sized circle. Circle has a word for harmony and success and represents an eternal prosperity of descendants.Those circles represent the 7 treasures of Buddhism: gold, silver, lapis lazuli, agate, pearl, coral and cristal. They are very used in many Japanese craftsmanships,wood, metal and so on. This pattern has been found on clothes from the 8th century.
