Asagao or "morning glory" is the beloved flower of summer. Because it blooms between July and September, it has become the synonym of summer. Its cool colours bring freshness and provide relief from the summer heat.
The delicate flower is seen on summer kimono and fans. Its popularity comes from the romantic nature of the flowers. As new flowers bloom in the morning, it also signifies the renewable spirit of love and affection.
Asagao is an ideal gift for someone born in August, as it's the summer flower of Japan. Its shape and size are perfect to wear it as a brooch, and subtle colour will draw the eye without overwhelming the outfit, and won't clash with any hair colour.
Made of 100% hand-dyed silk, lightweight and crisp.
Size: approx. 4cm
The leaf is set on a 2 Way Clip (alligator clip connected with a brooch)
~About my kanzashi~
Each kanzashi is made out of hand-folded petals, which are made from individual squares of high-quality fabrics. As with all items you see online, please be aware that due to your monitor settings colours may be displayed slightly differently.
Kanzashi should be kept it out of sunlight and dust, preferably in a jewellery box (if you own more than one kanzashi it's good to add a lavender sachet to the box). I do my best to make Wisteria Garden's kanzashi durable, but as with any delicate material, care should be taken when handling and storing your piece.
