The waves of the sea that come and go are given interesting names such as Nami-gashira, Oonami, Konami, Shiranami, Kataonami, and Doto, according to their various shapes. They have been made into patterns and have been used for crafts and dyed textiles since ancient times. Wave pattern is mainly a pattern that captures the moment when waves rush repeatedly or waves crash against the rocks. It is said that it was in the Momoyama period that it came to be favored as a pattern for costumes.
The motif of this fabric is the style of waves depicted in Ogata Korin's "Kouhaku Baizu Byoubu" (Red and White Plum Blossoms Folding Screen). It is said to be Ogata Korin's greatest masterpiece painted in his last years. Korinha is one of the Korin patterns, and among the wave patterns, it is widely used for kimonos and obis. It is characterized by its unique decorativeness that draws the flow of water in a curved vortex as it flows downwards. It is very popular for formal kimonos and obis.
The shining thread seems to represent the light reflected on the surface of the water, and it is a work that allows you to feel the beauty of nature.
