About the pattern
This tea cozy uses a kimono sash designed with multiple Japanese (family) crests. The crests on this tea cozy are paulownia, pine, bamboo, and chrysanthemum.
Paulownia is known as a tree where phoenix (a mythological bird) rested; therefore, considered an sacred tree. The pattern has long been used in garment worn by emperors, and from 14th century on it is used as a symbol of the government.
Pine is an evergreen tree, and for this reason the tree is associated with youth and longevity in Japan, often used for celebratory occasions.
