Wagara or the traditional Japanese patterns

I'm starting this blog to talk about the traditional Japanese patterns known as wagara (和柄). Once very common, its use declined as the Japanese moved away from the traditional clothing such as kimono. However, in the last few years we're seeing a revival of wagara as it's become "somewhat" trendy.

In the next posts, I'll try to introduce different kinds of patterns as well as providing a historical background and explanation if possible.

Also, I'll present you with a list of the most common colors used in the traditional clothing.

I hope you enjoy your time reading about this not-well-known topic.
