About the design
The Seven Treasures geometric design combines four ellipses in a circle, in such a way that the lines inside create more circles. The word Shippo is a reference to precious stones in Buddhism, and the ‘shiny’ appearance of the circles’ interiors.
Because of the geometric flow effect of the intersecting circles, this pattern was used to symbolise endless peace and happiness.
