It feels great to find my customers like my invitation card for the kimono makeover party and to tell them a hidden message of the logo.
The logo you see is based on a Japanese knot called “Mizuhiki”, which has a long history and plays an important role in Japanese culture as a symbol of affection, warmth, and togetherness. Mizuhiki knots are closely associated with the Japanese word musubu (meaning “connection” or “tying”) because tying a Mizuhiki knot connects people and ties them together.[singlepic id=54 w=320 h=240 float=][singlepic id=53 w=320 h=240 float=]This bow is often used when wrapping gifts or presents of money. Each knot has a meaning and is used for a specific event (wedding ceremony, funeral service, birth, visiting someone at the hospital, etc.).
I use this symbol in the shape of the letter T to express warmth and to spread a little of the charm and beauty of Japanese heritage with my customers.
