Explanation and meaning of pattern and colors
There are various types of wave patterns. Waves that come and go are used as auspicious symbols of eternity, immortality, longevity, birth, and so on. Big waves are called "Tatsunami pattern" or "Aranami pattern" and was popular in the Edo period (1603-1867). The waves come in repeatedly, changing the shape of the rocks and the line of the land, and the pattern is said to express a strong will and a spirit of persistancy that will not give up and will challenge again and again. It is also said to swallow up demons by the strength of the waves.

Kimonos that combine weaving, dyeing, and embroidery to this extent are rarely seen in recent years. The simple composition of the wave pattern with a single color gradation is a piece that shows the skill and good taste of the time.
