Textile Design 14:Carp Streamer







Today's featured textile design is "Carp Streamer" (Koi-nobori), which is used for our new tabi socks and tenugui towel.

The Carp Streamer taking in the wind, swimming in a leisurely manner in the sunny blue sky.
People used to set it up wishing for a boy's success in the future, but nowadays, they set up several different carps wishing all of the family member's wishes.

Looking at the carps swimming around in the big sky, they looks so free and make me feel happy.



晴れた青空に風をいっぱいに受けて、
ゆうゆうと泳ぐ鯉のぼり。
昔は男の子の出世を願って立てられたが、
現在では家族みんなの願いをこめて
何尾もあげることもある様だ。
大空を泳ぎ回る姿は、自由自在で楽しくなってくる。
