The Xesole project started with the rebirth of the Kimono.
Prestigious traditional Japanese costumes from the Heian period (7th century), commonly referred to as Japanese clothing. The “Kimono” is ceremonious, and the costume differs depending on the married and unmarried. Black “Tomesode” and “Furisode” are the most formal sunny clothes. There are clear rules in TPO, such as “Homoungi”, “Tsukesage”, “Tsumugi”, “Yukata”, etc.
Kimono was made as a day-to-day dress with woven patterns of “Kacho Fugetsu”/”Beauty of Nature” beautifully dyed colors and stylishly embroidered, so that traditionally one can choose and wear a pattern specific to one of the four seasons. Premium designs displaying the best of Japanese culture. For example: the pattern of cherry blossom. The cherry blossom is Japan’s national flower and is best worn in April.
Wearing an “out of season” pattern is strange, like wearing peonies in the summer. Hot coffee is served when it’s cold, and iced coffee is served when it’s hot. Traditional appropriateness should be observed.
The colors and patterns of the kimono reflect the ancient Japanese way of thinking. Red has long been an amulet, representing the temples of Southeast Asia. Green is a color of very strong significance because it is the natural color of trees, which means harmony and balance, health and growth. White is a sacred color that is pure in meaning and color used for wedding ceremonies.
The plum pattern is said to be resistant to adversity because it blooms in the cold before any flower. Shochiku Ume, considered a lucky charm, is also used for the prosperity of the descendants at the wedding ceremony. The “Ume = raw” “Kakekotoba” is composed of “Shochiku” plum, which remains green even in winter. It has the meaning of living forthright and blooming even in difficult times.
The reason that carp is considered an auspicious crest is that the carp that climbs the waterfall becomes a dragon. The carp streamer is a symbol of the celebration of boys’, a festival referred to as “Koinobori” (Carp streamer flying in the wind representing the waterfall climb to become a dragon).
As the Kimono was born of ancient Japanese culture and believed that there were life and God in everything.
