Textile Design 19:Spring Breeze

Today's featured textile design is "Spring Breeze," which is also used on a pair of our signature tabi socks.

Here's the note from the textile designer, Katsuji Wakisaka.

You can say that the wonderful sight of bright yellow flowers peaking through in-between the fields represents spring in Japan.
The Haiku poetry by Buson "Nanohana (broccoli flowers) - with the moon in the east and the sun in the west" reminds me of a sense of joy felt during a peaceful spring season.
