Silk Kiku Bow Tie

This silk fabric was originally made for a Komon Kimono. Komon means "small repeated patterns" and dyed Komon goes back to the Muromachi period (1333 - 1573) where the samurai class began to use them as daily clothes.

The Chrysanthemum or Kiku in Japanese is a symbol that represents longevity, endurance and integrity. It is the most celebrated of all Japanese fall-flowering plants. In 1869, the Kiku with 16 petals was officially adopted as the symbol of the Japanese royal family. The Imperial Seal of Japan is the most famous seal featuring the Chrysanthemum.
