Light Bandana - Arare

Regular price $ 12.00

This lightweight bandana is a part of a collection that uses kissho monyō as design motifs. Kissho (auspicious, fortuitous) monyō (motif) are used in Asia as decorative designs to bring good fortune or forestall bad luck.

The motif is called arare (hailstones) and depicts ice pellets forcefully hitting the ground and sharply bouncing back. This kimono pattern was among the favorites of the samurai during the Edo period.

It is infinitely versatile; you can wear it around the neck, cover the head, wrap your lunchbox or use it however you'd like.
