Karaori cloud tatewaku - Young bamboo on light gray
A motif betokening good fortune, representing yang energy rising from the earth to form auspicious clouds. This prestigious, courtly pattern was used on the clothing of persons of high status since ancient times. The clouds that drift through the sky never have the same form from moment to moment. They change color in the light of the morning or evening sun, and bathed in the moonlight they bring comfort in the black of night. Karaori, the artisanal technique used to weave the raised clouds into the fabric, is found nowhere else on Earth. Enrich your lifestyle with a vision of the freedom we feel when gazing up at the clouds above.
Color: Young bamboo on light gray
A noble color scheme adopting the green and blue palette of the vivid cloud pattern on the throne used for the ceremony of imperial accession. Our inspiration was the radiant green of foliage lit from behind and soaring clouds with the sun behind them.
