Lightweight Bandana - Octopus Karakusa
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 on objects to bring good fortune or forestall bad luck.
The cotton and linen blend bandana in a beautiful ocean blue is framed with an octopus karakusa pattern, a variation of the karakusa (arabesque with growing vines) motif with small stylized leaves on the outer vines. It is known as octopus karakusa because the vines resemble tentacles of an octopus, and the pattern suggests prosperity and longevity.
It is infinitely handy and versatile; wear it around the neck, cover the head, wrap your lunchbox or use it however you'd like.
