Item Katazome Variegated Indigo Cotton Textile
Crane and Pine Designs.

This katazome textile is filled with images of cranes and pine tree fronds. The Japanese crane is a traditional symbol of longevity and good fortune. And, pine tree fronds are long considered to symbolize youth and longevity. Here we see pine fronds growing out from or connecting to the crane. All in all, very auspicious metaphors aspiring a person to a prosperous and long life.
