Sakura - the national flower of Japan, the cherry blossom – or Sakura, represents a time of renewal and optimism. The pops of pink mark the ending of winter and signify the beginning of spring. Due to their quick blooming season, cherry blossoms also symbolize the transience of life, a major theme in Buddhism.
Butterfly - In Japanese culture, butterflies carry a number of meanings but are most closely associated with the symbolism of metamorphosis and transformation. Since the Heian period, they have been a symbol of refinement and purity, along with a reminder of former lovers
Plum blossom - As they bloom earlier than other plants, plum blossoms represent the thawing of winter and the changing of seasons
Ginkgo tree - In Japanese decorative art, the ginkgo's distinctive fan-shaped leaf has carried symbolism along with its singular beauty: the ginkgo has been a symbol of longevity (the tree can live for a thousand years) and of a more profound endurance (four ginkgos survived the blast at Hiroshima and are still growing today).
Morning Glory - Just as its name, this flower only blooms in the morning and cool time. In the language of flowers, it has the meaning of "brief love” and “bond of love”

~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 and the difference is not a basis for complaint or exchange.
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.i
