¥2,100

Release date: ‎ 2019/4/4
Language ‏ : ‎ Japanese
Book: ‎ 80 pages


May your child grow up safely... A talismanic seal containing the wishes of parents.

As can be seen from the saying that ``until the age of seven is in the realm of the gods,'' in the old days when infant mortality was high, infants died easily due to epidemics and accidents.
It was rare for him to live to be seven years old.
For this reason, parents would sew it onto the backs of their children's kimonos in hopes of helping their children grow up healthy.
It was said that monsters that harm children come from behind. Unlike adult kimonos, which have a seam at the center of the back,
It was believed that children's kimonos, which were made from one piece, were easily targeted by demons because they had no seams on the back.

In addition to traditional designs such as hemp leaves, diamonds, and frames, this book also includes original designs that are cute to embroider on small items such as T-shirts and bags.
I would like to introduce it together with an illustration by Nami Horikawa.

A total of 75 designs.
