romuji kimono and Black formal Haori style for my daughter’s graduation ceremony.
This blue Iromuji pattern is called “Tatewaku/Tachiwaki” this pattern is used since Nara era (7C.) in Japan. This design looks like rising steam. “Rising ‘ is one of good luck symbol in Japan.
And this Obi belt ’s triangle design is called “ Uroko” it means scales. Scales protect against bad lucks or misfortunes. This pattern has been used since B.C. so I assume it is one of very old pattern. It’s nice to learn old pattern meaning for kimonos.
