All patterns are our own designs, created by the brand’s co-founder, a painter and illustrator, Katarzyna Lamik. They are inspired by Japan, the country’s nature and the artist’s experience.
The pattern we called Tengoku - which is the Japanese counterpart of Eden - is a reference to paradise gardens. The inspiration was an apple tree orchard which belonged to the brand owners’ grandmother.
Ringo, or “apple tree” in Japanese, symbolises harmony and bonds, and is a subtle innuendo to the idea of a genealogical tree.
Pinkumo, or “pink cloud” in Japanese, is a pattern inspired by a view from a plane window: geometric network of fields subtly shrouded in fluffy clouds.
