Cotton Hat Cranes
This cotton hat is inspired by a pattern design of Japanese cranes, pictured on a 100- year old ‘furisode’. This is a precious Japanese kimono only worn by young, unmarried women. The word ‘kimono’ literally means ‘something to wear’, a slight hint that the most important feature is its pattern,taken from nature and bursting with symbolism. Throughout Asia, the crane bird is a symbol of happiness and eternal youth; it’s seen as a mystical creature and is believed to live for a thousand years. In reality and tragically, the Japanese crane bird is an endangered species, with a population of only an estimated 2750 in total; encroaching urbanisation has left them too little space to nest.
