Indigo Matsu Bow Tie
The pine tree, or matsu, was loved by Samurai warriors. They viewed the evergreen tree as a symbol of everlasting prosperity. The traditional pattern known as matsuba, or pine tree needles, is used extensively as a motif in Japanese arts and fashion. The pattern is believed to protect the wearer from evil.
Another symbol of prosperity in Japan are the deep blue fabrics dyed with Indigo dye, some of which date back over a thousand years. This is why we love using the pine needle on the deep blue Indigo Matsu bow tie. It reminds the wearer to have strength and patience. MORE ABOUT MATSU
