Royal Purple Shippou Nami Pocket Square

135.00

100% Silk

The Shippou pattern refers to the seven treasures of Buddhism: gold, silver, lapis lazuli, agate, seashell, amber, and coral. All of these are found on the Asian continent and were precious and rare products. Shippo also means "cloisonné," which refers to a decorating technique using metal strips and gems. The pattern represents these beautiful seven treasures inlaid in metal, in an infinitely repeating pattern.

Nami, or "wave," was used as a symbol of gods of the seas. This pattern was also seen on banners and armor from the Sengoku Era (the age of provincial wars), in which troops in war resembled a moving wave. The pattern represents strength, with marvelous depictions of churning, flowing waves.

Not only is the purple color unique, it is a royal and stylish tribute to any man's outfit. A traditional Eastern interpretation disguised as a highly distinctive accessory. Hand-finished with Baby Hem edges.
