SA-YA

Called as Saya in Edo (the old name for Tokyo) and as Rinzu in Kyoto, it suddenly spread from Kyoto around the country, and became familiar as a pattern for women’s ceremonial dress. It is the pattern much found in the silk textiles imported from China. However, it originates from the swastika pattern passed down through Hinduism, and it is said to be a symbol of good fortune, representing universe, infinity and peace.
