About the design
Nowaki refers to “windblown grasses”. This beautifully evocative sashiko motif likely developed from Japanese coastal fishing communities.
It depicts the shape of dune grasses in a strong sea breeze, and represents both resilience and the fortified strength derived from one’s roots.
