Traditional Japanese Patterns

I'm a very big fan of traditional Japanese patterns vs modern, contemporary patterns. Well, I do appreciate certain contemporary patterns - but they don't hold a special place in my heart as the traditional ones do.
There is something very aesthetically pleasing about traditional patterns, designs and colour combinations that just never seem to work with Western clothing.

To date - my top three favourite traditional patterns (in order) are:

Ume (plum blossom)

Chidori (plover)

Kanoko Shibori (a type of tie-die)

Asanoha (hemp leaf pattern)

(oops - top four, I guess!)

Lately, I've been looking at kimono, obi and fabric that contain traditional patterns and now, I am very excited - the other week, I purchased this obi:

It has the most adorable plump little chidori jumping over wave patterns on it. It is made from summer ro silk.

My next excitable purchase was this tan of asanoha kimono fabric.

Last, but not least - I purchased 4 metres of cute boy's fabric with traditional motifs in circles on it:

I love traditional print fabrics! Can you tell? :)

Thanks for your valuable post. Through the years,
I have been able to understand that the symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by this
build up associated fluid involving the lining of the lung and the upper
body cavity. The sickness may start inside the chest vicinity and propagate to other limbs.
Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight loss, severe inhaling trouble, throwing up, difficulty swallowing, and puffiness of the neck and face areas.
It really should be noted that some people existing with the
disease usually do not experience any kind of serious signs and symptoms at all.
