This design features the Seigaiha pattern, which evokes the images of the great sea with giant rolling waves. Based on this pattern, the auspicious Marumon (circle) and Sankakumon (triangle), a talisman and symbol of rebirth, are placed to illustrate the splashing water. Indigo, a traditional color deeply rooted in Japanese life, constitutes an integral part of the Japanese identity. The deep blue expresses an ocean scene of clear blue, sometimes wild, splashing waters.

Seigaiha is a geometric pattern with continuous semi-circles that depict waves. It is believed to have originated in ancient Persia. As an auspicious pattern, Seigaiha represents a wish for a never-ending future of continued peace, like gentle, repeating waves of the great ocean. The pattern can be found throughout the long history of Japanese kimonos.
