Three Rhombus Diamond Shape Connect

Hishimon (rhombus pattern) is supposed to be designed based on water caltrop.

Water caltrops mean prosperity of descendants because of its strong fertility.

Because pine leaves are evergreen trees there is a meaning of longevity.

Sangai-bishi (three rhombus) with three piled-up diamonds that were preferred as simple but also auspicious design was created with the rise of Samurais who liked simple strength.

By keeping the patterns overlapping, it means repetition of descendant prosperity and longevity.

I designed while praying for family safety and perfect health of wearers.

It takes 1 day to weave this cloth only 3.8 meters.
