Purple Karakusa Pocket Square

135.00

100% Silk

Nothing short of rich and engaging, the Karakusa, or "arabesque" patterns, is taken from stalks and tendrils, and the links between leaves and vines of plants. It is a symbol for eternity and sometimes a symbol for a family's legacy, like a family tree in Western culture.

This silk fabric was originally made for a Komon Kimono.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. These patterns are equally distributed throughout the fabric and are printed from woodblocks or dyed using stencils. A highly distinctive pocket square and hand-finished with Baby Hem edges.
