Shippo Pattern


This pattern consists of superimposed circles forming petals or stars, depending the way you look at it.

The Shippo pattern represents the seven treasures of Buddhism (gold, silver, pearl, coral, crystal, agate and lapis lazuli).

The Shippo pattern used to be highly popular in the Edo period, especially on women’s kimonos.

It is said to be a symbol of harmony and good relationships.
